Here is a short segment of us as we spoke about some new On Air features from Google+ from U_News uses G+ Hangouts as a “back channel” of sorts to interact with viewers during the show and also give people a forum to comment about the day’s news.
This video clip is behind the scenes of yesterday’s show. We had about 6 co-hosts on yesterday’s show from all around the globe. U_News airs on +KOMU 8 News , the NBC affiliate in Columbia, MO. KOMU-TV is also the training lab for the Missouri School of Journalism, so students are also learning how to integrate this Hangout technology into their crowd sourcing and their storytelling.
