NBC News Digital Chief: Video News Consumption is Bigger Than Ever

Posted: 01/28/2011 2:06 pm


Powered by a "billion" video cameras, coupled with new devices for viewing, more consumers are watching video news than ever before, says Mark Lukasiewicz, NBC News VP for Specials and Digital.

In this interview with Beet.TV, Lukasiewicz explains how NBC is soliciting and vetting consumer generated content and creating new forms of "story telling" with the NBC News staff. 

The use of user generated video has been essential for news organizations in reporting the uprising in Egypt. We've pasted below the latest dispatch by NBC News reporter Richard Engel. 

Lukasiewicz will be a panelist at the Beet.TV Online Video Journalism Summit on Tuesday at the Washington Post.  We will stream the event live from 9-11:30 ET.
