 Metro News Network Barcodes generated with TEC-IT Barcode Software.

     1) What does a legitimate MNN issued badge look like?

    • Please see our sample pictures to the right. They are taken from  actual badges we have           issued for this current year 2019. Some information has purposely been obscured.

     2) What is the difference between a license & permit?

     • A Broadcaster's License is our version of a Press Pass. A Network Affiliate Broadcaster's
       Permit is only an ID Card proving affiliation with our network, but is not a Press Pass and
       therefore it doesn't hold as much access privileges that a press pass might. Permit's are
       usually given "Media Only" access while a license is granted "Media, Pit & Full Access." The
       rules and mood of each venue manager is what we follow as a guest at their place.

     3)What should I look for when verifying an MNN badge?

     • There are several updated security features on both the License & Permit. See photos
        to the right. All codes and magnetic stripe are swipeable & scannable.
