PBA TV Coverage Workshop

"There will always be room for improvement" was the message imparted by Bobong Velez, the former head of Vintage Enterprises who spoke earlier this week during a 3 hour workshop hosted by Solar in their main office in Makati.  It was a philosophy that propelled the PBA coverage in the late 80's and early 90's into the best sports entertainment available on television.  He praised the current coverage and encouraged everyone not to be complacent to improve even more.

Norman Black addressed the group as well as an analyst stressing the importance of credibility and making sure that commentators have to know more than the viewers.   Andy Jao touched on the duty to know the rules of the league to be able to convey them to the fans.  Ed Picson talked about the roles for the anchors and analysts during the coverage while Quinito Henson imparted how crucial it was to be prepared for a coverage.

The producers, directors, the commissioner's office, Solar managers along with the oncam talents attended.  Among the talents who attended were:  Norman Black, Paolo Trillo, Mico Halili, Magoo Marjon, Patricia Hizon, Vince Hizon, Peaches Aberin, Ed Picson, Quinito Henson, Jason Webb, Dominic Uy, Richard Del Rosario, Reema Chanco, Anthony Suntay, Ceska Litton, Vitto Lazatin, Marga Vargas, and Mica Abesamis.

For the most part, we talked about what was good with the coverage and what else needs to improve especially going into the semi finals.

Kaboom, is there still a chance that Sev Sarmenta will join the PBA TV panel in the finals or next conference? We want to see Sev in the PBA considering that he covered the league for many years.

I'm not sure James. The decision to assign the talents rest under the production group which I am only a talent.

As part of the Marketing group of Solar, I certainly don't have any objections to Sev being part of the panel but as I've mentioned, that is the discretion of the production team. Personally, I do think that he will eventually be part of the PBA lineup, it's just a matter of time.

Another key reason why people try to make use of generic versions of Viagra
is the decreased cost involved. This makes people less likely to be concerned if the medication is not quite as effective as the Viagra UK
created by Pfizer. The manner in which many people purchase generic Cheap Cialis
can also decrease the ability to reclaim the cost if the product is found to be ineffective.

This can be highly dangerous because people are reportedly using Viagra in conjunction with such illegal substances as ecstasy. No studies have been done on how the two drugs may interact so the consequences of the use of buy Viagra with illegal substances can prove to be devastating. Buy Viagra Online may cause serious injuries and even death.
