An idea I’ve experimented with a lot is web casting at a newspaper. There’s blogs and all sorts of different ways to demystify the process and humanize us as newsgatherers. These guys beat me to the punch, I guess. What do you all think? Yes, the audience is, no doubt, small but it is a good-faith effort on the part of the newspaper to open itself up. Plus, with podcasting and live blogging and what not it’s clear that people want immediate information.
An aside (and shameless plug), check me out tonight as I try some live coverage of the hockey game. Because our blogs aren’t yet up it won’t quite be live but period by period.
