Sarah Hill, Interactive Anchor/Reporter at KOMU-TV. Host of U_News @ 4, now hosts interactive conversation about “U”, and today’s news; the show launched yesterday, September 12, 2011.
This new format includes Hangouts, video conferences provided by Google+, with up to ten people. I am lucky that I will be seating in on Wednesday, Sept. 14 (tomorrow), and also on Wednesday, Sept. 21. My hope is that I can participate in further future broadcasts as one of the “roomies”.
For a peek into the show, I share with you an interview via a Hangout between Sarah and Kempton Lam, another roomie on the news hour:
And now for the first-ever news event also held in a Google+ Hangout – it is 1 hour and 45 minutes long, but worth watching for the behind-the-scenes about this new technology pioneered by Sarah and the Team at KOMU Channel 8 in Columbia, Missouri (http://www.komu.com/news/komu-8-launches-u_news-4-sarahhill/):
Please join us in the Hangout – it will (probably?) be streamed to YouTube live; the location will be published ahead of time. If the event is not streamed on YouTube, make sure to watch it at the KOMU Channel 8 streaming web site, http://www.komu.com/streaming-newscast/.
See you there!
