PIC: Houston TV photographer "going the extra mile"

This is what going the extra mile looks like on Twitpic
An unnamed KIAH 39 photog is shown on reporter Hailey Frances' twitpic "going the extra mile."

I have been told this is 39 KIAH photographer Michael Barbagallo.

- TV stations that have photographers win
- VIDEO: TV news photog makes movie!


  1. Amazing how channel 39 is making payroll. Who in the hell watches these people. I came home late from the office one night and tried very hard to watch thier news cast and man...I felt like what in the world is this. Glad my agency refuses to give them any ad buys.

  2. They have an awful news program, but it's not for lack of talent as seen here. Looks like management is running that place into the ground.

  3. There are a lot of very talented people at channel 39 who are ashamed of what they are being told to put on the air, too.

  4. Having worked with Mike at one time, he's one of the hardest working guys in the business. Nice to see his efforts noticed.

    You should see what he shot in NYC on 9/11 at ground zero.

    Let's just say he was in that big cloud of dust.

  5. There is a lot of talent there, and a lot of good people who got out when it started going this direction. It's sad because it used to be a quality newscast. Now they are trying to please a segment of the public that doesn't watch the news and isn't going to, so they are are humiliating themselves for no reason.
