As of today, my WTTW colleague, Carol Marin, has started The Marin Report; it’s a quick video recap of the day’s top stories. You will be able to check it out every day at 12:00 pm on the Chicago Sun-Times website, and then afterwards on her blog. No one is a bigger fan of Carol’s than I am, so I wish her the best in this new venture.
And what Carol has written about it is true: the lines continue to blur between the different news “platforms.” The work of “print” reporters is now featured on the Internet and the same reporter is just as apt to do a broadcast version of the piece, as well. A little more work for those of in the media, but more offerings for you, our appreciated news consumer!
