There's no pity if you're not creative
As the media world continues to move forward technologically pretty much every day, it's bringing the wide world of television continually closer to the average person.
In the past, one needed a bundle of cameras, operators, video editing bays and people to produce all the material in front of and behind those cameras.
It's a helluva task to produce a television show, especially a live show.
And, that's what we're delving into at oregonsports.com, live television. It's not television, because there's no station call letters or the FCC involved, but it's the worldwide web version of TV, we're using Ustream.
Thursday, the staff oregonsports.com will produce its pilot episode of "No Pity City," which will focus on soccer in Portland, especially the Timbers, their players, coaches, games and fans.
The premiere episode is set for live viewing at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, with filming taking place at the Bulldog Tavern in Southwest Portland.
Viewers can follow the show and contribute through the chat room that will be active during the show. Publisher Cliff Pfenning and Timbers beat writer Mike Donovan will serve as co-hosts of the show, which is being presented by the Bulldog Tavern and the Vanport Batting Cages.Viewers can watch the live show from this page.
