In the late 1970s, WINK TV called Ed Fitzgerald, currently Clear-Com’s Director of Customer Satisfaction, because they wanted to purchase and install Clear-Com’s intercom systems. Ed remembers that was the first time that Clear-Com had ever received a call from a television station. During that time, we did not understand the broadcast market very well and did not know how WINK TV wanted to use our voice communication systems. We had been primarily serving the live performance industry.

Just as concerts were using Clear-Com, the WINK TV team wanted to use our system to coordinate their television cameras during productions. Since that initial entrance into the broadcast industry, Clear-Com has become a global leader in voice communication systems. In basically every major city throughout the United States, there are television stations that utilize our equipment to stay connected.
