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.

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