The New Zealand Herald is celebrating 150 years and today they have been sharing something quite different with their readers – a live blog from the newsroom.
Earlier today, as part of our usual Wednesday weather video, a couple of photos were uploaded to the live blog, showing Philip Duncan presenting the weather and Herald producer Ash Boyd making sure it looks and sounds good enough to go to air.
The videos are recorded live – in other words, we don’t edit it afterwards. No scripts are used and usually we record in one take – but not always. We think the record was 10 takes!?
The forecasts are prepared by WeatherWatch.co.nz using maps from Weathermap.
Congratulations to the NZ Herald for 150 years – and a real honour that our brand could be part of this historic moment.
