When Sony Pictures Television’s Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! leave their respective studios to tape shows, PRG has provided gear and support for both productions. During November, both shows will be airing episodes that took place on the road. Jeopardy! taped a college tournament at RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C., while i>Wheel of Fortune taped its shows at the New Orleans Convention Center in New Orleans.
“Typically, when people think of a show like this coming to their town, I doubt they have any idea how much is involved,” says front-of-house mixer and system designer Bill Daly of PRG Audio. “We travel with over 100 staff and crewmembers, and there are usually 14 to 17 trucks of equipment and set.”
For both game shows, Daly uses a line array P.A. that includes cabinets from JBL, L-Acoustics and Nexo. “Having a variety of gear options really does help. Due to the depth of PRG’s inventory, I have the luxury of great equipment availability and choosing how it will all fit together in a cohesive package,” Daly explains.
PRG also provides an experienced audio crew that includes crew chief/system engineer Alan Henig and system engineer/floor A2 Larry Borgarding. David Hoover manages the account in PRG’s Orlando office.
