Video Journalism: “a concept we have to learn”
He reckons – state side at least – most small market newsrooms will see a shift towards video journalism.
And he says:
“If one instills the positive side of OMB/VJ early on, AND they get the proper training AND the OMB/VJ is NOT ABUSED by some moron manager/desk person who has never been in the field and doesn’t have a clue as to what goes on on a video shoot AND the pay is as good as anyone else shooting and reporting then I think the OMB/VJ concept has the potential to take off and in fact be embraced.”
Not much to ask then!
