Technical Specs- Governor’s Inauguration, January 1, 2015

Both radio and television feeds will be up beginning at 12:00:00 exactly and end at 12:56:40 exactly. The television satellite feeds will be up after 11:30:00 for tests. 

In the unlikely event the live event overruns the scheduled end time, we will still end the feed at 12:56:40 and fade to black for approximately 5 seconds to allow stations to exit and then fade back up to continue the feed on the satellite and web stream until the event is over or until conclusion of satellite time at 13:30:00. All feeds will include a time check/clock for your reference.
