Technology Crossing Continents

No more pricey "bloated" bureaus for ABC News, which just announced that it plans to expand its foreign coverage in the coming months through the use of mobile one-person operations in Africa, India and other countries, according to a recent piece by The Hollywood Reporter.

Like most large media outlets, ABC had shuttered some of its foreign bureaus due to high costs associated with personnel, security, travel, etc. Now the network will provide single reporters with hand-held digital technology so they can work from home and travel to produce packages for, ABC News Now, World News Tonight and Good Morning America, according to the Reporter. It will be interesting to see if any of its competitors follow suit.
