I have been doing this for a LONG time, and have pitched and presented the VJ idea to innumerable news organizations (and others) around the world.
The perpetual question I always get asked is, "OK, this is fine for features, but not for real news'.
This morning on FB, I came across a reel posted by Rav Vadgama, a working VJ at ITV, and maybe one of the best in the business. I first met him when he was one of our first in the world VJs at Channel One in London, a mere 25 years ago. (is that even possible?)
Take a look at his, work.
He isn't called Rebel Without A Crew for nothing.
Now, about that question about VJs and news???
