All WFIR studio and newsroom machines have this network location mapped to the drive letter N. This means you can use the drive on those machines just as if it were a local hard drive. For example you can browse files on the News drive through “My Computer” or through file open/save dialog boxes without having to know the network location, just select the drive letter N from the location drop down box.
If you are on a machine that doesn’t have the News Drive drive mapped then you probably shouldn’t be accessing it. The News Drive is for WFIR file storage only. This drive provides audio to on-air resources like WireReady and should not be accessed by anyone outside the news department.

Add a Hard or Soft sync on the first 3 am event for the schedule to be accurate after the automatic time change.
Hard Sync (#): While in Auto mode, at the time indicated in the “schedule time” field of the target event, a hard sync will discard all events between the target and the next-to-play position, placing the target in second position. The event on-air is then faded and the target event is aired immediately.
Soft Sync (*): While in Auto mode, the behavior of a soft sync is the same as a hard sync, except the air event is not faded and the target event is not placed on-air (i.e. the schedule is just updated). Events between the on-air event and the soft sync (*) will be DROPPED when the clock reaches the specified time of the sync event.
The skimmer is an automatic air check monitoring system that begins recording each time a microphone is turned on and stops when it is turned off.
These recordings can be accessed inside the building only by visiting http://skimmer/. Once on the page navigate by station, date then time. Recordings are not stored forever, as disk space runs out older air-checks are automatically deleted to make room for new ones.
Note: This service is only available for WXLK, WSLC, and WSLQ.
There are two WiFi or wireless networks avaliable inside building Wheeler-Net and Wheeler-Guest.

The “S Drive” and “Audio Server” are the same thing. All studio, news and production machines have this network location mapped to the drive letter S. This means you can use the drive on those machines just as if it were a local hard drive. For example you can browse files on the S drive through “My Computer” or through file open/save dialog boxes without having to know the network location, just select the drive letter S from the location drop down box.
If you are on a machine that doesn’t have the S drive mapped then you probably shouldn’t be accessing it. The S Drive is primarily for short to midterm audio storage and shouldn’t be used for storing documents or other files.
If you feel you need access to the S Drive and don’t already have it contact the IT Department.
