TV is a “legacy” product dating back 70 years, yet TV newsrooms are equipped with the essential tools to succeed in the future of media where visuals trump text. Additionally, those well-known anchors and reporters are now de factor social influencers, giving TV stations that embrace digital a rosier outlook on our collective future.
