Washington Post Video nominated for 17 local Emmy awards.

Posted 6 years, 8 months ago

The National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has nominated the Washington Post video team for 17 local Emmy Awards.  The Emmys honor excellence in various categories of television, but as many media outlets transition to video they become eligable as well.

This is an example of a news outlet adapting to remain relevant in the new media landscape.  The public has clearly moved to the internet as a place to get information, and video is the lingua franca of the Internet.   Therefore, in order to stay relevant a print news organization must not only be accesable on the Internet, but also must provide video. 

It is not surprising that the Post has received nominations, in the past year it has made some significant improvements to its video operation, and this focus on video seems to be a direct result of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' acquisition of the newspaper. The Post was nominated in categories that encompass many topics.
