Publicity is publicity, so I'm not blaming CN9, but WROW's weekly visits are about the most inane thing on morning radio ---and that's saying a lot. Friday found Vandenburgh complimenting reporter Danielle Strauss on her interview with one of the Mexicans busted during this week's immigration raid at IFCO. He kept saying, repeatedly, that it was an excellent "stand-up". Not to be all nit-picky, but a stand-up is not an interview, a stand-up is when the reporter speaks to the camera. She was gracious enough not to correct him.
Since Albany Eye is all about helping people, we'd like Mr. Vandenburgh to see this handy glossary of TV news jargon. Don't overdue it, you'll sound geeky ---on top of sounding like a letch.
