OneTravel Holdings announced today the launch of the OneTravel Satellite TV Studio. Cheapseats.com airline expert Terry Trippler will now be available via satellite for live and taped TV interviews from a state of the art studio in downtown Minneapolis. The hi-tech studio is run by television veterans who can customize segments by adding graphics into video and overlaying images. With over 36 years of commercial travel industry experience, Terry Trippler is considered one of America’s foremost authorities on the airline industry and the rules that govern their operation. Mr. Trippler has also been very involved in the events leading up to the current Northwest Airlines strike and remains a source of insights and information on this and other travel related current events.
Trippler has been quoted in USA Today and other major newspapers, as well as almost every television network including shows such as ABC’S 20/20, Dateline NBC, Your World with Neil Cavuto, and CBS Evening News, among others.
“We have found that it is difficult for the media to conduct satellite interviews. Since Terry Trippler has become one of the most qualified and sought after travel and airline experts, we felt that as part of our mission to keep our customers informed on the industry, we would facilitate the process by making Terry and his knowledge of the industry available to the masses. We are by no means getting into the television business, but the cost of the studio was so negligible that it is well justified by the amount of use we expect the studio to get,” explained William Goldstein OTV’s Chairman and CEO.
“I felt the development of a satellite studio was important because in every market, no matter the size, stations should have the same access to current and relevant information regarding the air travel industry,” expressed Terry Trippler.
