Public Broadcasting Service station KGTF in the U.S. Territory of Guam has installed Myers Information Systems’ ProTrack TV broadcast management system.
KGTF—which has been broadcasting since 1970—made the leap from manual, paper-centric scheduling and asset management to a software-based system that’s broadcast exchange format (BXF) integrated with on-air automation.
“We’re a small station, far away—both in distance and time zones—from everyday technical support, so we took the time to thoroughly research and evaluate alternatives before choosing our traffic and automation companies,” said Cathy Gogue, KGTF’s general manager. “Because Myers understands PBS, they were able to scale ProTrack to suit our staff, workflow and budget,” she said.
The station’s traffic department is adjusting to the new workflow and master control has more time now to monitor the on-air product, which viewers have noticed and commented on, Gogue added.
