Remote Production And The Future Of News Storytelling
Has story-centric workflow, long a mantra in news production, gotten a boost from more than a year of distributed production? How are news managers, producers and the operations teams that support them reimagining production and storytelling in a post-pandemic world? News leaders will consider those questions during Remote Production and the Future of News Storytelling, a panel at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum conference on Dec. 14.
Andrea Owen, director of operations, Washington, D.C., Bureau, ABC News; Robin Whitmeyer, VP and news director, KDFW Dallas; Bobby Cassidy, executive director of multimedia, Newsday; and Ray Thompson, director, marketing solutions, broadcast and media, Avid will join moderator Mike Fass, technology and workflow consultant, EVERForward Strategies, for the 3 p.m. panel, presented in person at the New York Hilton and virtually.
“Remote production isn’t an exception anymore — it’s an option,” said Kathy Haley, TVNewsCheck’s publisher and co-founder. “This panel will delve into the new normal of hybrid workflows, looking not only at how it has impacted news technology, but its editorial content as well.”
In-person attendees at the New York Hilton will be required to show proof of complete vaccination and extensive COVID safety protocols will be in place on site for the event, which will be co-located with Sports Video Group’s annual summit.
Panels will explore a wide range of the industry’s most pressing challenges and exciting technological opportunities. They will include a keynote interview with Fox Weather President Sharri Berg and meteorologists Amy Freeze and Craig Herrera, and panels including The Cloud and the Future of News Production; Reinventing the Live Shot; News Operations in a Changed World; Reinventing TV News for a Connected World; and News Technology and Combatting Disinformation.
Attendees will have access to a Technology Showcase featuring socially distanced exhibits hosted by companies including Grass Valley, Ross Video, TVU and others. Attendees will also have access to sessions at the Sports Video Group Summit, which is co-located with NewsTECHForum.
