News meeting is content, video version

In Spokane, the news meeting is content. Twice a day, the Spokesman-Review editors gather and discuss the day’s news and what they plan to do on line and in print. It’s all on streaming video and there is a handy dandy guide to what’s what in the room for anyone who wants more information. The editor, Steven A. Smith, did this Q &A with Poynter. Excerpt:
"Will anyone actually watch? We have the technology, but we don’t always have the
drama. Will our competitors gain an advantage? Will our staff be as open in
public as in private? If the experiment does not further our goals, does not
help us do our jobs more effectively, we’ll stop. The technology is being used
for many other purposes so the modest investment is not wasted."
