Broadcast Pioneers members Jane King Hall and Pat Delsi
Wednesday, April 17, 2002
Jane King (now known as Jane King Hall) has been in broadcasting since the forties. She was part of the "Let Skinner Do It" and "Let Scott Do It" programs that aired over WPTZ, Channel 3 in Philadelphia (now KYW-TV.) Also featured on the program was Joe Earley as Mr. Rivets.
On Wednesday, April 17, 2002, we spoke with Jane as part of our "Oral History" project, now called "Pioneers in Broadcasting." The program is cut into three segments so that it loads easier on your computer.
We have now become accustomed to web video being excellent. However, in 2002, when this interview was recorded, it was not very good. Streaming video was in the infancy stages. Today, we stream at 30 frames a second, just like television. However, the technology of 2002 would only allow 4 or 5 frames a second and thus, it would appear to be choppy. Also, technology at that time wasn't able to sync up the audio and video well.
We call this to your attention because the video we are streaming on this page dates from 2002. We hope that someday, time will allow us to re-encode this using today's technology.
The video is cut into three segments. However, the video will roll. That is, once you have the video playing, your player will automatically go into the next segment at the proper time without you doing anything.
