FOX 26 KRIV tests remote broadcasts

Weekend anchor Tom Zizka posted photos on Facebook of FOX 26 KRIV conducting broadcasting tests from its transmitter location.

"At the foot of the FOX 26 Houston transmission tower, in Missouri City ...where we're preparing a remote studio... Just In Case our normal facilities are unavailable. #CoronaVirus," Zizka posted.

Someone comments on Zizka's post with, "What AREN'T you saying, Tom!!!????"

He replied, "Nothing ... just that a plan is in place IF someone at the station contracts the virus and we had to stay out of the building."

As I blogged about last week when abc13 KTRK anchor Chancy Glover tested positive for COVID-19, WBBM Chicago also tested remote newscasts from the street in case the station was compromised.
