Planning for Katrina
205 (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
Carl C. Arredondo III, WWL-TV, New Orleans, LA
How did WWL-TV plan for what could have been the Big One New Orleans has been waiting for years? WWL-TV was able to stay on the air non stop and stream on the web non stop because of careful planning from management and parent company Belo. Many employees worked non stop covering the biggest story and what would be the worst natural disaster while knowing that their own homes were being destroyed or flooded.
