#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – how to host a Google+ Hangout On Air

An increasing number of news outlets are using the Google+ Hangout On Air feature to involve their community both as participants in the video broadcast and as viewers. On Air hangouts are broadcast live on YouTube as well as on Google+.

Time magazine held its first Hangout On Air last month and Al Jazeera social media programme The Stream held an editorial meeting via hangout.

If you would like to follow suit, here is a video hangout explaining how to host a Hangout On Air (HOA). It is hosted by Sarah Hill.

In this HOA, France 24, KOMU-TV, KRNV-TV, WSPA-TV, developers and independent Journalists share tips, tricks and tools on how to host your own Hangout On Air.

This 10 person video chat room is fueling a journalism renaissance as it’s a collaborative space bringing together developers with traditional and independent journalists.
