A Georgia TV station says it will save nearly ten grand a year by replacing paper with iPads, TVNewsCheck reported.

WFXL Albany is no longer using paper scripts, opting instead for six iPads with scripts displayed on-screen as PDFs.

That replaces “hundreds of thousands” of sheets of paper, says news director Terry Graham.

Good for the environment, good for saving a little bit of money, okay.

But the greater benefit is probably that now WFXL is going to be known as “the iPad station.”

We also wonder if WXFL is angling for a sponsorship of some sort, because this story, lovely as it is, sounds just like an advertisement for Apple.
