The news came via email. Something to celebrate and therefore: Cake for everybody! Thanks but no thanks, since we are all foreign correspondents. In spirit we party along. Especially this time. NOS Dutch public broadcasting has gone live 24 hours a day.
You may check out the livestream here:
Of course, one can think of many things to bitch about, but today I choose not to. It is a good initiative, and proof of the steps forward my folks back at headquarters are taking. This is what NOS Journaal 24 offers besides any newsworthy live stream:
1. NOS Journaal Plus, news bulletins with additional background, continually updated.
2. NOS Journaal Reportages, with the best or most interesting features of the past week.
3. NOS Journaal Weekoverzicht, which offers a weekly overview of all the news.
4. NOS Journaal Chat, the opportunity to ask questions to a news maker through our website.
Not bad for a Monday morning. Not bad at all. You may leave any whining in the comments below.
