We interrupt this program…

to bring you, not any two-bit bite of breaking news, but the very future of news. The other day, Yahoo! launched the Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone project

as its first endeavor in original multimedia newsgathering. We believe Kevin will bring to Yahoo! News users a unique perspective as he travels to conflict areas around the globe and sends back stories, photos, video and audio reports focused on the human element.

I used to think that "convergence" was something that will happen in combination newsrooms, at cross-functional super-desks, in the space between different groups of people with different sets of skills. Turns out convergence journalism is what a convergence journalist does.
