Telling the best story possible: First Coast News, Jacksonville, FL

When I visited Tegna station, First Coast News in Jacksonville, Florida, to learn how they use virtual graphics, a key theme proliferated our conversation: how they connect with viewers by telling the best story possible. First Coast News is committed to conveying their stories in multiple ways - the way that best fits the subject matter. In whatever way that connects with people the most meaningfully.  In talking with the staff at First Coast News, it was evident that adding virtual graphics to their reporting helps their viewers connect with the news in an emotional way. In a single newscast, they'll use virtual graphics to tell one story, then switch to a traditional set to set a different tone, then switch back to a virtual set with an animated augmented graphics piece...

Broadcast is a Tameable Animal.

I recently made plans to meet a friend at NAB, as our booths are near each other in the South Lower Hall. We both grew up in this industry selling and marketing traditional, physical hardware. When I mentioned how excited I am to be working for ChyronHego and the technology innovations that have erupted since we last worked together, he responded, “Broadcast is a different animal now.” That statement made me think about how broadcast production, consumption, and mediums have evolved not just over the past ten years, but in the past two years. In the past ten years, we've encountered...
