Earlier, I said — more video, less production.
I’ve also been second guessing in my own mind the idea of a newspaper doing a video of recapped headlines, sort of a TV-like newscast.
I just checked out Roanoke’s TimesCast for the first time. I’d just like to know how it’s doing for them on traffic/popularity, because it’s mighty engaging. What makes it good, of course, are the people — they inject verve and personality into every segment. This isn’t just a static restatement of the news, but a very creative and un-TV-like approach to news.
