Television Broadcast Magazine Profiles Sports TV Veteran

Television Broadcast will sport a new design with the upcoming issue, as the magazine and Web site continue to keep the focus on call-letter broadcast TV stations. The March issue includes an Executive Profile of television sports production veteran Ken Aagaard, now senior vide president of operations and production services at CBS. Aagaard started his career on the links, but not behind a camera…

The issue also features a Q&A with an up-and-coming news entrepreneur. Nineteen-year-old Eric Wotila of Cadillac, Mich., developed an online local newscast that’s been picked up for insertion by the area cable system.

As always, the magazine will feature the HD News Map, showing stations around the nation that are doing local news in HD, plus Jim Owens continues to provide Olympics previews, while regular contributors Jeffery Ulrich and Mark Schubin both weigh in on numbers--Ulrich on ad pricing, Schubin on how many pixels it takes to make a picture.
