Throughout the year, TVNewsCheck has reported the deaths of outstanding men and women who shaped television as actors, lawmakers, producers, business people, journalists and on-air personalities. Here they are as Part IV of our Year in Review Special Report.
This year’s major technology news (complete with links to earlier stories) includes developments in ATSC 3.0, the next-gen broadcast TV standard; the growth of 4K; increasing acceptance of bonded cellular for ENG; as well as changes at some prominent tech vendors. This is Part III of TVNewsCheck’s annual Year in Review for 2013. Part I, which appeared Tuesday, reviewed the year’s happenings in local and broadcast network news. Part II, which ran Wednesday, recapped the year’s highlights in business, regulation, syndicated and broadcast network programming and new media. And Part IV on Friday will remember the electronic media luninaries who died during 2013
Part II of TVNewsCheck‘s annual roundup of the major news of the year (complete with links to earlier stories) covers business; regulatory/legal developments; syndicated and network programming; and new media. In Part I, which appeared yesterday, you can review the year’s happenings in local and broadcast network news. Part III, which appears at noon on Thursday will recap the year’s technology highlights. And Part IV on Friday will remember the electronic media luminaries who died during 2013.
Once again, a wide range of breaking news stories kept local television news departments as well as broadcast network operations scrambling and, in some cases, working together to make sense of horrific events like the Boston Marathon bombings. This is the first part of TVNewsCheck’s annual look back at the year. Tomorrow in Part II we’ll reprise the major developments in business, regulation, programming and new media. Part III, the year’s big stories in technology, will be featured on Thursday at noon and Part IV on Friday will highlight those the industry lost during the year.
