#newsrw: ‘The fact that multimedia is visual is a huge benefit to radio,’ says @newsleader

In the latest Q&A on our news:rewired site, media consultant and top radio tipster Justin Kings describes how radio can make the most of multimedia tools.

The fact that much of multimedia is visual is a huge benefit to radio. We’ve seen how images, videos and so on can help enhance the radio experience. In terms of social media, I would suggest radio is itself a social media. By that I mean it shares similar characteristics, it is personal, it’s interactive and reactive. So, again, tools like Twitter can complement content on the radio.

Newsleader: Winners of the ‘Talkies’ 2009

Justin Kings, radio journalist and media consultant (check out his biog here) has chosen his best radio of 2009 – in what he calls ‘The Talkies’.

Here’s his one of his winners in the ‘Beyond the Call of Duty’ / multimedia category, awarded to Adam Westbrook for his work in Iraq – as a local radio journalist.

Adam Westbrook was sent [to Iraq] for Viking FM to cover the story of North Yorkshire soldiers serving out there. As well as filing radio pieces, he enhanced the experience for the audience by shooting video, nicely packaged, and producing a very effective audio slide show. It is a great example of what can be achieved within local commercial radio news.

An example of his video content here:
