Mark Maxey: Yorktel’s media services team producing the HDTV broadcast of the 2013 National Memorial Day Parade
Before we break for the holiday, I wanted to share with everyone that this weekend, Yorktel’s media services team is producing the HD television broadcast of the 2013 National Memorial Day Parade. The program includes actors Gary Sinise & Joe Mantegna, Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan, country music star Trace Adkins, wounded warrior and Dancing with the Stars winner JR Martinez, Sam James from NBC’s The Voice, and American Idol winner Taylor Hicks.
Yorktel’s 50 person broadcast production crew will provide all HD production, post production and broadcast transmissions for the two-hour program. The show is broadcast live on The Pentagon Channel (TPC) and syndicated nationally across more than 100 stations, reaching more than 80 million television viewing households. It is also beamed worldwide on the American Forces Network (AFN) and streamed globally at www.military.com by the Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS).
Special thanks to the dedicated Yorktel employees working throughout the holiday weekend to make this show possible for Yorktel’s client and parade organizer, the American Veterans Center, including: Eric Bibbs, Charlie Bird, Andrew Blekaitis, Steve Fisher, Henny Gerard, Shawn Grice, Chris Hauser, Mark Maxey, Miles Needer, Jimmy Ray, Malcolm Riddle, and Alex Zeese.
