2018 #NABShow – Day 3 Wrap-Up

The<span class= #NABShow is still kicking. Come join the innovation and excitement @nabshow ncb" width="234" height="234" />

SO we are on the THIRD day of The 2018 NAB Show – and WOW!  WHAT a day it WAS!!! Broadcast Beat had a STELLAR coverage day of the Show yesterday, and the third day is no different!  The show is going FABULOUSLY, and our crew is doing INCREDIBLE work – they are extremely instrumental in allowing us to get the word out and all the products showcased!


Here goes! The<span class= #NABShow LIVE studio is going out right now! See you in #Vegas @nabshow!" width="200" height="200" />

You know, before the show starts, I have to talk about the Broadcast Beat staff, and how much of themselves is put into every show!  So many people are working “behind the scenes” – it’s not just the on-camera talent, it’s everybody! If you could have seen all the equipment we packed in our Ft. Lauderdale Studio, you’d understand just what an undertaking this is!  The ONLY thing that makes this easy to do is that the content – The Show Exhibitors and their offerings – is right there before us; it’s literally a blank canvas upon which we can lay the products and people onto… So much for my “romancing” – Let’s get ON with it!

Here we are – getting ready for DAY 3 – everybody is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed… all crews have checked-in and we’re ready to roll!  I see our on-camera talents are rip-roaring & ready to go, as well!!!  So let’s do this… run!  Be Free!!! LOL
