WELCOME, DEAR READERS, TO SO NICE TO MEDIA!, THE BLOG THAT ASKS THE MUSICAL QUESTION, “WHAT REALLY HAPPENS DURING A LIVE TV BROADCAST OR BEHIND THE SCENES?”
THE ANSWER IS … RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!
SO NICE TO MEDIA! IS A BLOG TOLD IN SCRIPT FORM, LIKE IN A NEWSCAST. SHORT, TO-THE-POINT AND REAL. NO ON-AIR TV PEEPS WERE HARMED, THEY DID IT TO THEMSELVES.
