Two Cents Worth

September 19, 2008 - Bill Speer
Today at this website we are offering another new feature - a podcast of news commentary from the week. Entitled "Our Two Cents Worth" the podcast features myself and fellow blogger Steve Murch, our managing editor. Each week the podcast will be available on Fridays in the afternoon for downloading, or for play on your computer.

Thirty years ago as a graduating senior at West Virginia University if someone had told me I would be blogging, putting up podcasts or even coordinating special video projects for the internet I would have laughed, paused, and then said "internet, what's an internet?"

Today of course the internet is a key component to the overall news package for any newspaper. Thanks to this wonderful technology not only can reporters today put out a comprehensive and complete news package daily via the newspaper, they can enhance their coverage through elements such as our website.

For instance the podcasts allow us to share with you interviews conducted in the process of gathering news, or following up on a news event. Likewise our video projects also allow us the opportunity to share visually those same elements.

It is exciting and I believe, makes a reporter's role all the more important in the years ahead.

It's been an interesting 30 years. I wonder what I can't comprehend today that will be available in the next 30?
