News Podcasts

Downloading and streaming the news as digital multimedia webcast feeds

Podcasts are downloaded and streamed broadcasts of audio and video information content from websites. Podcasting is a way for news media to distribute their current events information in audio and video formats as an addition to their text information. Public relations professionals use podcasts as a way to distribute their multimedia news to journalists and consumers. Broadcasters use podcasts as an additional means of distributing news and entertainment programming and promoting commentary on their program episodes.
