New media updates

A few new media developments to report from the past week...

KUTV's web site has been re-tooled. The CBS owned-and-operated station in Salt Lake City is apparently the first Viacom station out of the gate with new video streams. "2News @ Your Desk" is a very cool addition. Check it out.

And, by the way, Congratulations to Tanya Vea on her promotion to KUTV News Director. Just nine years ago, when I was an executive producer at KUTV, Tanya was an intern at the station.

By way of Lost Remote we learn that Raleigh's WRAL-TV has a new webcast on its site. It's pretty casual and it promotes the station's website.

Lost Remote also reporting that WKRN in Nashville is the latest station to adopt video journalist positions. This trend could prove to be of consequence for our current broadcast journalism students. Earlier, Lost Remote interviewed Michael Rosenblum, who it credits with introducing the VJ concept (actually, I thought CNN did in 1980). It's a worthwhile read.

Finally, Apple's latest version of iPod, out today, adds podcasting capabilities.
