TV stations that have photographers win

Randy Tatano The Grape is back arguing for TV stations to keep the photographers and dump the one man band idea:

Shooters: TV News Photographers and their Work
Now let's look at this from a bottom line angle. Station A uses one-man-bands. Station B does not. Both have a reporter opening. Both have the same candidate as their number one choice. The reporter takes the job with the photogs, even for less money. Take this scenario out a few years into the future, and Station B has a world class reporting staff while Station A continually has to settle for second best.

Which translates into better ratings for Station B. Which means more profits for Station B. READ THE REST
