Video Streaming: Flash From the Past - Behind the Scenes...By Sue TL Fox

(FEB 17, 2008) This year---WBAN is in the process of now archiving past footage and photos from all the coverage that we have provided throughout the nearly 10 years of being on the net.  In this video streaming that was “Behind the Scenes” , it was an all-women’s boxing card that I covered in Austin, Texas. The weigh-in was held on November 15, 2001, and on that day, while pre-fight interviews and weigh-ins were in the process of being done by WBAN, other news agencies and a television crew, we found ourselves in the midst of a tornado. I among all others ended up in the basement, while we were told that we were in the eye of the tornado.  While waiting in the basement, the electricity went out, and it was dark, other than the emergency lights that ran off a generator.  The video streaming is of the “Behind the Scenes” at the weigh-in, and some of the footage I shot while being in the eye of the tornado inside the basement.  I also shot outside where there were flash floods going right next to the hotel.   The weigh-in there are glimpses of Sumya “Island Girl” Anani, Fredia “The Cheetah” Gibbs,  Ada Velez, Chevelle Hallback, Mary Elizabeth Ortega, Gina Nicholas, Snodene Blakeney, Jessica Mohs, and more....Footage by Sue TL Fox
