To pick up the slack and fulfill the contracts picked up when Conus Communications Co. LP scaled
back in September, Associated Press has launched a new Washington, D.C., news service,
APTN Washington Direct.
Live shots, edited footage, crews and satellite-transmission capability will
all be available to customers looking to lower newsgathering costs for stories
out of the White House, Pentagon, State, the Hill, and elsewhere.
There will be a daily 4:30 p.m. (EST) feed of sound bites and b-roll, as well
as customized capability via APTN Broadcast Services in Washington.
The television industry's top news stories, analysis and blogs of the day.
