CNBC recently chose VideoLink as their production management partner when their Squawk Across America Tour pulled in to Boston’s Fenway Park.
VideoLink provided a crew of 34 production and engineering people that supplemented the CNBC traveled crew of 10. A total of five locations were set up within Fenway including the right field rooftop (beneath the Budweiser sign), that served as “home base” and a position at the base of the Green Monster which served as a Squawk Box anchor position.
Guests included guest host Jack Welch and was complimented by a number of well-known Boston luminaries including Governor Deval Patrick, Dunkin Donuts CEO Jon Luther, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Red Sox President Larry Luchino.
The show went off without a hitch and showcased many of Fenway Park’s most notable vistas. The best and most challenging part: VideoLink and the CNBC crew managed to pull off the three hour show from setup to strike in less than twelve hours.
