Reporters To Do Live Reports From Newsrooms
The Hartford (Conn.) Courant is crossing corporate
boundaries and media to create a partnership with New England
Cable News (NECN), a 24-hour all-news cable channel.
The newsrooms will be linked by fiber-optic transmission lines so
Courant reporters and editors can do live cablecasts. The
Courant’s ctnow.com Web site will have access to NECN’s
video, while the paper expects to benefit from the network’s
news-gathering force in parts of New England outside its
The Courant, a Tribune Co. paper, will continue its video
affiliation with Trib-owned Fox 61/WTIC-TV in Hartford.
