10 Jan 2008 News 12 LI Election Coverage
The News 12 online Voter Guide provided an easy-to-use interactive map that outlined all of the races throughout Long Island, with bios of candidates and videos of candidates’ final statements from News 12 televised debates.
The Voter Guide was supplemented by the Island Vote ’08 live blog from four election headquarters across Long Island. Each producer was given a Flip cam and a laptop, and in four hours, we produced nine raw videos and about 30 quality posts. We also had a producer at headquarters firing off Twitter updates throughout the night and ongoing breaking news stories on our main site.
