The Next Big Things for Newspapers: Podcasting, Vodcasting

[Keyword: ]. Editor & Publisher wakes up to the podcasting hype with an overview of the trend and who's been using podcasts in their news offerings. Summing up quote:
"The danger in getting "too professional" in newspaper podcasting is that it becomes just a clone of traditional TV newscasting -- something most newspaper podcast pioneers say they're trying to avoid. "I think there's room for something that's different, and perhaps quirkier, than broadcast news," says Asakawa. "Podcasting is still at a stage where that DIY ethic informs the sound more than the need for strict structure and a bunch of rules.""

Thanks for the link, I had missed the article...

I wish they would have mentioned the Mercury News in California--a place that integrates podcasts well with complicated feature packages.

Which podcasting papers do you think Editor & Publisher missed?
