Social Media and Livestreaming's Impact on Newsgathering in TV, Radio and Print

Social media and livestreaming are putting more demands on news reporters, anchors and producers, who must juggle the needs of traditional broadcast and print distribution along with the realtime needs of social media. I interviewed three news professionals in TV, radio and print to find out what this means in terms of real-world reporting!

I’m Kerry Shearer, a communications and broadcast professional based in Sacramento, CA. As "The Livestream Expert," I specialize in live streaming, social media, and web video. I’m a conference speaker, workshop presenter, social media trainer and content creation coach for businesses, entrepreneurs and public agencies. I thrive on helping organizations and individuals create compelling content, reach and connect with their audiences, and successfully grow their influence!

I am also available to be on scene with brands or organizations during major events or promotions to host or coordinate their live streaming broadcasts on Periscope or Facebook.
