Kare 11 is one news organization I looked at. They feature a number of videos and pictures along with the news stories. This helps to personify and add life to the stories.
WCCO is another news organization I looked at. They also feature videos and pictures. These features really add spunk and makes the story more interesting. I felt more engaged as a reader when I had video and photos to look at. The story was more than just words.
The writing for these extra add-ons was simple. It was quick to the point and easy to understand.
