More on THV's 'Backpack Journalist'

Arkansas Business.com interviewed THV's News Direction Mark Raines about the station's Backpack Journalist position its advertising for. Below are a few quotes from the article:

> “It will allow them to get outside the Little Rock metro area and get into stories two or three hours away without them having to really worry about getting back before news time,” Raines said. “They’ll be able to dump all of their video into a laptop computer and edit a story in the laptop and then basically hit send, and it’ll come back to a server we’ll have in place this year.”

> “It’s something we’re basically kind of experimenting with here to see if it will work as well as it has in other markets,” Raines added. “It’s been done before, but not with the newer and more efficient equipment.”

I love how they make being cheap sound so sexy.

I just wonder how they are going to find wi-fi hotspots in rural arkansas in order to transmit the story back to little rock? I can't imagine that Mount Ida is overloaded with hotspots....

Hey Raines, what a great way to SPIN a position that is nothing more than a smal market one man band job opening.

You can send video back on a cell phone line and most of rural Arkansas have cell phone towers.

WCVB, Boston—not a schlocky operation—has a guy doing this sort of thing regularly.
