Who is Brian Kramp?
It is a good question to test out a MOS package for a rookie reporter. If you are in the TV business, then you know MOS stands for "Man On Street" and it is what Kramp will be doing for WITI-TV Fox 6 and its new program "Studio A" that will launch on Sept. 9.
Kramp, the former morning show host on WLUM-FM 102.1, and podcaster with OnMilwaukee, will be the entertainment reporter assigned to the hour-long show that will air at 4 p.m. weekdays.
Anchors Katrina Cravy and Ted Perry will host the show from the station. You can read more about the program here.
In the video, check out the interview when Perry and Cravy dropped in on "Real Milwaukee," and see Kramp in the humbling exercise to see if anyone knows who he is.
SIDE NOTE: A friend and colleague of mine from broadcasting shared a story he remembers from his film instructor on where M.O.S. came from and what it means in production circles.
Apparently, the term means to shoot video without sound. The story goes to old Hollywood where a German director ordered the shoot to be made "mit out sound." The camera assistant responded to the direction by writing "M.O.S." down on a slate.
Media is bombarding us everywhere.
Instead of sheltering his brain from the onslaught, Steve embraces the news stories, entertainment, billboards, blogs, talk shows and everything in between.
The former writer, editor and producer in TV, radio, Web and newspapers, will be talking about what media does in our community and how it shapes who we are and what we do.
