Unsolved crimes, regional history, culture and climate offer big opportunities for new shows with a distinctly local bent. Executives from top networks and TV station groups will share how they’re mining their archives to create compelling new shows in a panel, Mining the Archives for New Shows, at TVNewsCheck’s Programming Everywhere: The Content Event for Linear, Streaming and Syndication, at the NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 16.

Ben Ramos, VP, Fox Archive, field and emerging technology, Fox News; Nora Zimmett, president, news and original series, The Weather Channel; Jon Accarrino, VP of transformation and strategic initiatives, Capitol Broadcasting; and Sam Peterson, CTO, Bitcentral, will join moderator Michael Depp, chief content officer, NewsTECHMedia and editor of TVNewsCheck for the 3:15 p.m. panel.

“News organizations have realized what amazing material they’ve been sitting on for years, and the more progressive among them have been digitizing and metatagging that content for numerous applications,” Depp said. “This discussion will look at the processes they’ve employed to get a handle on their archives, the technology that has enabled them to do it and the original new shows and revenue opportunities they’ve developed from their efforts.”
