Rick Zach, chief engineer at a TV station in Boston, knows the New Hampshire Primaries.

On his personal Web site, he’s posted a stock of behind-the-scenes photos of the coverage of the Jan. 8 contest, the press rooms, ENG and satellite trucks and camera pens, all with commentary — including some culinary analysis.

It’s not about radio but it’s worth a view for technical broadcast folks and political junkies alike. (Our favorite bit is a photo of street actor and write-in candidate “Vermin Supreme.” His campaign slogan: “I’m against gingivitis and plaque.”)

The primary report is here. And as he notes on the site, the commentary is Zach’s own, not the station’s.
