Reporters shoot and edit videos

I love that our reporters are shooting videos to go with their stories. Each reporter has a Flip cam, and they often shoot and edit videos that accompany those produced by our professional photographers.

When I started out in this business years ago, the idea of reporters shooting videos would have been scoffed at. We’ve come a long way, baby!

Here, Leigh Zaleski shoots a clip for her upcoming story (check Monday’s YDR) about people getting cancer-inspired tattoos. You’ll see Josh Neiderhiser getting a tattoo to honor his sister and her fight with breast cancer.
