One of the topics we briefly touched on is the ability of weblogs to break news online. Well, with that in mind, here's a development in the online news industry that I haven't seen reported elsewhere yet:
During the discussion of "Sports Journalism in the 21st Century," ESPN.com Executive Editor John Marvel mentioned his site, which is the world's leading sports Web site, will be redesigned in the coming weeks. He said, with much enthusiasm, that the home page would begin to feature video clips prominently.
It has previously been reported that the site
"is plannng a 2003 debut for EXPN Action Sports On Demand, a broadband and subscription video-on-demand service targeting the genre."
Marvel declined to give me a sneak preview of the redesigned site.
