This month’s host: Andrew Pergam. The note below comes from him.
I’m excited to host this month’s Carnival of Journalism around one key area of interest: the future of online video news.
Traditional newsrooms have had, in many ways, a complicated relationship with video:
* Television networks and local stations. The broadcast side of the business brings in significantly more money than online video–a disparity which often influences staffing and workflow decisions.
* Newspapers. The written word has trumped other online content for decades. Many have expanded by adding video journalists. Their struggle is, how to incorporate video coverage into legacy workflows.
Full disclosure: I’m working at one of those “newspapers” in Washington, D.C. This #jcarn is related to that work only in that I’m interested in the topic of online news video as a whole.
