Video at TBC

It is a new world at The Bakersfield Californian. In a recent reorganization, video has been folded into the now 'visual' team. What is funny is that way back when, when I was a fellow at Poynter, they divided us up into the 'visuals' and the 'verbals.'

Anyway, trip down history lane aside, we have launched a Brightcove player and are stoked with the new video love.

Check us out!

new year

Happy New Year!

In 2007 The Bakersfield Californian went over the 1 million videos viewed mark, just under the wire in December. The actual number is something like 1.12 million, but let us not pick nits.

So, in recognition of this and because we like to have fun, we presented the Top 10 videos as viewed by our readers/viewers and our staff picks for 2007.

It is an interesting contrast between what got hits versus what we liked or thought was good video.

Let me know what you think.
