News organization USA Today on Tuesday launched a daily online and print listing of the day’s best Webisodes and video podcasts, as chosen by its editorial department. Just about any kind of video content is fair game for the listing, as long as it is Web video-only. It will also include a weekly pick by USA Today’s Pop Candy blogger Whitney Matheson.
“With celebrities such as Tom Hanks and Jerry Seinfeld entering the Web-only space, and alternative programming sites such as YouTube, Hulu and Netflix carrying exclusive programming, the time has come to reflect the changing media landscape. This is the natural evolution of where TV programming is headed and USA Today is at the forefront by providing these listings spotlighting the best on the Web for our audience,” said Larry Kramer, president and publisher of USA Today.
