Scene @ the NAB/RTDNA

MBNAB5.pngAs we cover day two of the NAB/RTDNA conference here in Las Vegas some quick snapshots of what’s going on. NBC News correspondent Bob Dotson discussed how he finds, interviews and assembles his “American Story with Bob Dotson” series for the Today show.

Around the same time as Dotson was speaking, we dropped in to the main ballroom at the Hilton Las Vegas as FCC chairman Julius Genachowski tried to calm the fears of a roomful of skeptical broadcasters about the government’s National Broadband Plan.

And below, a bulletin board — the old fashioned kind — already filled with resumes from hopeful future tvnewsers. There’s another full board nearby. The RTDNA conference attracts not just news managers but students hoping to get on their radar.
