About the Author

Andrew H. Utterback, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at Eastern Connecticut State University. As a former Senior Production Technician, he writes from professional studio-based television experience on over 300 major production assignments that include program credits in master control, as grip, gaffer, camera operator, tape op, floor director, technical director, assistant director, and director. As a result he thoroughly understands the ins and outs of each staff member`s responsibilities in the television studio and how to function effectively as a leader on set. Having trained hundreds of students in television production at the University of Utah, Northern Arizona University, Marist College, and Eastern Connecticut State University, Dr. Utterback knows how to present the fundamentals of studio television production and directing in a simple, straightforward manner that is clear and unintimidating to students and aspiring professionals.


"As both a technical director/editor and as a consultant, I've seen the broadcast news industry reinvent itself many times over the past thirty years. Most textbooks either misread the technical end of the business or ignore it entirely. It's refreshing to see a text that is not only relevant in today's news environment, but accurately explains the business from both technical and journalistic viewpoints." - Mark Helman, Broadcast Consultant "Dr. Utterback's real world experience paired with his approach to teaching the fundamentals and essential techniques helped me hone my craft and transition from academic to the local TV market." - Grace Guerin, Production Technician, Fox CT "Dr. Utterback's knowledge of the production process gave me a greater appreciation for all members of the team tasked with putting a quality newscast on the air and that is something that helped me in my career as a producer." -Robby Messer, Former Utterback student and Emmy-winning producer
