WCVB (Channel 5) in Boston was testing its new High Definition set with a dummy newscast. Anchors Ed Harding and Natalie Jacobsen were pretty much sailing along when Nat’s cell phone went off. Kudos to the person who happened to find this video on WCVB’s website and posted it on YouTube last month.
By the way, WCVB is part of a group of Hearst-Argyle TV stations that will have its video available on YouTube. Right now, WCVB, WBAL in Baltimore, WMUR in Manchester, NH, WTAE in Pittsburgh and KCRA in Sacramento are storing news stories and promos on their own YouTube sites. Hearst-Argyle expects to have all of its stations, close to 30, on YouTube in the near future.
