At the Texas State Broadcasting meeting on April 10, I learned that Spectrum News is making budget and staff changes. Spectrum News which now owns NY1 has decided to extend a layoff swept to get rid of older on-air talent.
In a nut shell Spectrum NY1 wants a younger and cheaper staff which is good news for reporters new in the field. Part of the change comes with eliminating content on lifestyle and entertainment such as film and cooking. This change will be nationally impacted with all the Spectrum news channels including Austin and San Antonio.
Here are some of my favorite drone videos that are vastly popular and viewed on YouTube. The filmmaker uses the Phantom 4 drone. The first video is a montage of video shots throughout Hawaii. The second video is a collection of sequences all shot in California.
I love that the California video gives the viewer a perspective of what it’s like to live by the coast, country, city and suburbs. These are great examples of great drone storytelling. I also like how the filmmaker incorporated music in the background. Hope you enjoy these beautiful videos!

On Wednesday, March 22nd in London, England a terrorist attack took place right outside Parliament killing and injuring civilians. Since this was a terrorist attack in London, I was surprised to find out there was not much information and coverage online by the American news outlets. Since England is one of our allies I thought and assumed there would be more TV coverage and news updates on this tragic event.
While reading online, The New York Times did a great job at providing content in a timely manner featuring an article, infographic, photos and videos of the story unfolding.
