St Pete Grand Prix/ABC

Post by Baylink » Tue Dec 17, 2013 1:40 pm

ABC Sports will be doing one of their rare local (to me) gigs at the race in March.

Do they hire local talent for PAs, cable grips, and fourth-tier positions like that for large multi-day remotes? If so, would they be doing it through the local affil?

Typically network sports are farmed out to companies like Game Creek, who use their own crews. Local affiliate interaction is typically quite minimal.

But it doesn't hurt to find out from ABC who is doing the production and seeing if the company uses "day labor" or not...

Got it. I have an event staff contact; I'll work it backwards that way and see what they know.
