The Times Introduces a Daily Video Report

The New York Times on Monday began producing a daily video on its Web site, summarizing the big news stories of the day.
The program, called TimesCast, lasting a few minutes, will appear on the nytimes.com home page at 1 p.m. each day; after 2 p.m., it will move to a less prominent position on the site. (It can always be found at nytimes.com/timescast.) It features interviews with editors and reporters who are covering the major stories, and scenes from meetings among the paper’s top editors discussing events that might go on the front page >>>
