CTAM Summit 05: C-SPAN Adds Podcasts To Multimedia Roster

C-SPAN, which has a history of tapping in to new technology, adds podcasts to the variety of ways viewers and listeners can tap into the cluster of public affairs nets. It’s not the House or Senate — although some podcasters and bloggers I know are longing for a day when all of the congressional audio and video is available online for public use. Instead, C-SPAN is launching its podcasts with three popular shows: After Words, Q & A and segments from American Perspectives. I heard about the pod trio from network execs Peter Kiley and Rob Kennedy as I was heading out of CTAM tonight. I wanted to ask about the congressional material — we’ll talk about that another time — but the podcasts are a good sign given C-SPAN’s cable roots.
