One response to “Travis Fox — For Thursday

  1. This is one of my first experiences with video journalism, it is interesting to me how similar their composition is to radio stories…also, it is exciting that his video journalism is being funded by selling stories to television, perhaps this is one way newsrooms can sustain themselves in the future.
