The CBS Evening News just profiled their retiring Director, Eric Shapiro. It’s sad to see someone with 51 years of experience, retiring, but with everything he has directed, with everyone he has worked with, he deserves the chance to sit on the sidelines for once.
It’s my dream to someday work in a control room at the network. To get to direct the elections of Presidents, of Popes, and as they said those “once in a lifetime” events. I’m just an unknown in Minneapolis, right now, but some day, right?
Godspeed Eric Shapiro. You’re one of the old school, rock solid, Directors. Good luck in whatever you do next, and may I follow in your (admittedly very hard to fill) shoes some day.
