The anchor serves an important part of news broadcasting. I realize that anchors on the US networks (at least the news I followed this summer) are different. They are more like funny personalities who joke around with each other and try to make you stay through the next commercial break. News broadcasting isn't like that over here. The anchor is there to instill trust in the news that is to be broadcast (like the reporter is there to convey emotions to the place of the report). The anchor also sets the context for the story - a role that is not to be underestimated. > he explained how he loves watching news on WebJay becasue its just > straight news clips. everyone agreed. change things up while you can. > Andrew said he understood and expected us all to tear it up. > having now seen his vlog, i see that he has tried to switch it up a > little. > shooting in the street...some funny bits....a little less newsy. I really like the first show - that straight news report from the street. It was a very well done news report (of course it's still just tv and that sucks and stuff. Yes, that was meant to be tongue in cheek) > Andreas is obsessed (a good thing) with making sure we undersatnd that > what we are doing is not "new media". > and he's absolutley correct. It just irks me when I hear podcasters and online-independent-tv-producers (or whatever) yell about having invented a new fucking type of media, when all they've done is to hit 'record' on their tape player. > Storytelling and Momentshowing.
