A contracting working group for the Air National Guard hosted a live, nationwide question-and-answer session here Oct. 6 with the field from the TEC TV studios at the IG. Brown Training and Education Center in Louisville, Tenn.

The subject matter experts addressed current information and issues in contracting. They also gave high praise during their broadcast to the TEC's staff and facilities.

The Air National Guard's divisions and career fields use the studio to communicate with Airmen, as the studio allows them live video and audio feedback from the TEC TV control room for workshop interaction.

The TEC's Media and Engagement Division broadcast crew managed presentation slides and relayed questions via phone, email and text from a control room to the group to address on camera. Many questions came in, and the group took a large number of questions back to their offices.

The TEC TV Warrior Network includes satellite and high-definition video tele-training connections to 168 Air National Guard downlink sites and base closed-circuit television channels as well as live-stream video to the military network.
