DATELINE TALLAHASSEE - How often have you seen major news
or sports stories come out of the Florida's capital and found yourself
without a way to cover it? Unless you belong to one of the few news
syndicates in Tallahassee, you may have a tough time covering the
capital city and the surrounding areas. Waterford Productions can
be your solution. We combine digital cameras and editors with nearly
20 years of television and broadcast experience that includes live
and package reporting, anchoring, shooting, editing and producing
news and sports.
During the 2000 presidential recount Waterford Productions provided
a reporter to five television stations across the country, from
New York City to Austin, Texas to Tampa, Florida. Maureen
Walsh did up to 40 live shots a day and used her extensive sources
and knowledge of the Florida capital to spearhead the 36 days of
recount coverage. Maureen is a veteran Tallahassee journalist whose
capital connections go back to her college days when she was a reading
clerk in the Florida House of Representatives. From spot news to
legislative and political stories, Waterford Productions can provide
you with solid video work and insightful coverage from seasoned
is synonymous with Bobby Bowden and Florida State University, the
premier college football program in the country. Every year FSU
is the big game on fall schedule. If you can't afford to send your
own crew to Tallahassee, let Waterford Productions cover your team
for you. Waterford Productions can provide video clips and interviews
from FSU games and practices and help you get the video and sound
bites when you need them.
Our sports coverage does not begin and end with the Seminoles.
Since 1998, our staff has spent parts of February and March traveling
across Florida to shoot major league spring training. We are extremely
knowledgeable about baseball and can get you the video and interviews
you need from the day pitchers and catchers report to camp... until
the day the teams break to head north for opening day.
Waterford Productions has the sports experience to bring you football,
baseball and many other sports. Our reporter has anchored sports
broadcasts, produced sports specials and covered the 1996 Summer
Olympics for a network of stations across the country, filing live
reports and packages for network affiliates in Philadelphia, Seattle
