Now that headline would simply not have made any sense a year ago. But sources tell me that the Courier-Journal newspaper has raided a local TV station for talent.
WAVE-TV videographer Scott Utterback has reportedly accepted a new job at the C-J, where he will add some video professionalism to the paper’s core of photographers. Utterback presumably will shoot stories to be featured in the C-J’s video section, and I would think he’ll help all those journalists figure out how to really use a video camera to tell a story.
Utterback, according to a story on the National Press Photographers Association web site, resigned as the organization’s vice president earlier this year, citing personal reasons.
The C-J has been experimenting with video on its Web site for about a year, and held training sessions for members of its reporting staff on using video.
