News10 and Channel 3 - right now! - are streamingthe California Hall of Fame ceremonies on their Web sites.
But News10 took it a step further, having entertainment reporter Jonathan Mumm go live from the "red carpet" before the event.
What a disaster.
I watched for eight minutes as Mumm and his photographer stood there, well, doing nothing. Just waiting. Oh, occasionally, Mumm would mumble something and point out Clint Eastwood's wife or some lesser known personality as the photog scanned the room.
But when the Guv and Maria finally made the scene, Mumm had to wait some more as California's first couple gave an interview to ... Channel 3.
Mumm kept looking back to the camera, sheepishly, as viewers on the Web stream could hear the Guv answering questions from KCRA - and even a KFBK radio reporter.
At one point, Mumm turned his head and told viewers: "I'd piggyback on what they (Channel 3) are doing, but Brandon (his photographer) doesn't have the shot. So we'll stay here."
At last, Mumm got his turn.
But compelling TV, it wasn't.
If anything, it shows how tedious a reporter's job usually is - you often just stand around, waiting a lot, and then grovel for a few minutes with the subject.
Advice to prospective journalism students: Go into welding.
