Politico Planning Big Slate of Web Video Shows (Video)

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON -- Seeing an emerging playing field where Internet delivered video news will eventually be on par with cable, Politico will broadly expand its video programming this year, says Jim VandeHei, Executive Editor, in this interview with Beet.TV

Web-only video news from newspapers, wire services and portals is on the rise.   Yahoo! just announced an ambitious documentary season, Adweek's Mike Shields reports.

The emergence of Web-only journalism is also getting increased attention from the academic world.  Columbia's duPont Awards, the broadcast news sibling to the Pulitzers, is soliciting awards submissions in this area.  Here is our report on efforts at Columbia.

We interviewed VandeHei in Politico's Washington newsroom earlier this week.  Here is our first interview with him about the value of staff reporters on camera.
