I went into the IT field years back after seeing jobs and opportunities dry up in television production land.
Most of what I used to do with bays of expensive analog and digital videotape machines, edit controllers, and the necessary support equipment is done with with a suitable PC or Mac in one box or laptop.
You may know about this than I do, but as an avid listener of AM talk radio, I’ve noticed certain radio stations in my area seem to run on “autopilot”. There are almost no local personalities that seem to be manning the place at least over the microphone. They are all nationally syndicated shows with pre-recorded advertisements. Very few staff, I presume other than someone to make sure the shows keep rolling with as few technical glitches as possible.
