Looks like WPLG have gotten on the webcast wagon. They have a web-only newscast, hence the webcast moniker. Unlike WTVJ which have NewsNet but that airs on TV as well. The first edition was on February 3rd at 4pm.
It runs 4 minutes with a few headlines at first, then follows a tease of a 11p segment, then a quick weather look, then a longer tease about the 11p special report.
There will be 3 webcasts throughout the day — at 9am, noon, and 4pm. I have to say I won’t be surprised if that 4pm webcast gets expanded into longer than 4 minutes when WPLG drops their 5pm to 6pm newscast. At 4pm people are still at the office working and getting ready for the dreaded rush hour traffic, so being able to stream the 4pm traffic reports and such would be great.
It would be nice to see WPLG make this into a video podcast with RSS for people to subscribe to and download on their iPods or whatever and take it with them anywhere they wish.
