The remarkably talented Nikki Kay is a graduate of one of our bootcamps.

She's also the sports reporter for Spectrum News 1 Los Angeles.

Last week, she went to Dodger Stadium for Opening Day, and she brought along her iPhone - as usual.  

Everyone at Spectrum News 1 shoots with an iPhone.

Lots of times, particulary in the time of Covid, we are asked, how do you do a personal story if there is no one there?

Nikki brillianttly answers the question.

She also is bringing exactly the kind of personal authorship we hope to engender by moving from conventional local TV news to an entirely new model.

Take a look

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
