Local media outlets have gone about doing things differently in recent years. More specifically, I'm talking about creating videos of their stories and sharing them with the public through YouTube channels. El Manana, Univision (KLDO), and even the LMT's Joe Rutland keep us up to date on the news around town, but they take that extra step and allow us to share their content via video format.
We here at LaSanbe, as well as Bordertown Blues and Que Fregados, have featured videos from local media providers, including KGNS Channel 10.
Newsweek's Jon Meacham appeared on The Daily Show to talk about the sale of the popular news weekly. He told the show's host, Jon Stewart, that they have to embrace the internet and put more focus on the digital.
The people who bring us the news locally have slowly adapted to this theory. They still have a ways to go. There are so many ways to present the news. I, for one, can't wait for what comes next.
