Eyewitness News has a crew of 15 headed to Miami to bring you Super Bowl coverage. Our engineers and production staff left this weekend with the satellite truck.
Throughout the week, and during the game, various members of WTHR’s crew will be sending back updates, which will be posted to the 13 Sports Blog.
This is from engineer Jack Tapp:
Randy, Todd, Maury, & Jack spent most of the day Friday out in the cold unloading the production truck and loading the trailer with the technical equipment for us to take to SB XLIV. We dressed in layers and kept moving.
Saturday the satellite truck left about 2 hours late due to the pop off valve for the air brakes being frozen open. Maury & Todd called our truck service shop PFM which responded with in an hour to fix the truck.
They made good time got to Nashville, TN. in 5 hours. The roads were wet and they drove past a jack-knifed semi.
