Frequently Asked Questions:

How do we do it?

We use Google Plus every night.  Google Plus is Google's social network. 

What is a hangout?

A hangout is a way for several people to talk at once.  It's great for families, friends, or in our case, the news.  You can hangout in private or you can select the option to have a Hangout on Air, which is what we do for the news.  That means that our hangout streams live over YouTube.  When you host an HOA, you can also change the YouTube settings to private.

Why Google Plus?

We use Google Plus because the technology is way ahead of the curve.  We are also still on Facebook and Twitter.  We like G+ because the technology allows us to cover news in new ways.  We can interview anyone from anytime.  If we're out in the field and use Google Plus, it's like being a mobile news station.  And if we host HOAs, then we can save the recording.

Is anyone else on Google Plus?  Yes, there are millions of people on Google Plus.  We, however, are the only local news station in the country with an integrated live news feed on Google Plus.
