A Tribute to Hearstís Michael T. Keller
For his many contributions to the television industry
Please join SMPTE New England, Hearst Television, many of the product and thought leaders of the industry and WCVB for a memorable evening celebrating the career of a remarkable broadcaster, Mike Keller.
Our season opening meeting features an evening celebrating the many contributions of Michael T. Keller to the broadcast television industry.
Mike is a thought leader, mentor and contributor to many of the products and systems in daily use today in many broadcast stations. After a 25 year career at Hearst Television, culminating with his service as Director of Engineering, Eastern Stations, Mike will retire in December, 2017.
Mikeís responsibilities took him up and down the east coast and into the mid-west; but the local and regional inmpact of his work in New England is the most telling measure of a career well spent. Mike is a second generation television engineer; his father, Thomas B. Keller, is a SMPTE Life Fellow who was instrumental in the creation and launch of the Western Avenue technical facilities of WGBH. Between the Kellerís, father and son, is a span of engineering service to the television industry of more than seven decades.
The SMPTE New England Section wishes to thank SMPTE Manager David Beauvais, Assistant Director of Engineering at WCVB-TV, for managing and making this meeting possible as well as to WCVB-TV for so generously hosting this meeting.
