Jeremy Jojola takes investigative reporting to the next level with a smartphone

Emmy award-winning journalist Jeremy Jojola is not only breaking news, he’s making news. The KOB-TV, Albuquerque, New Mexico investigative reporter was one of the first journalists in the nation to use a smartphone to conduct a live shot.

With his Apple iPhone, he sat out to see whether the mobile could be an effective device to use in the field. He found it to be effective; however, there were some limitations.  The video and audio were good for some breaking news stories, but it was challenging to shoot video with minimal movement without propping the phone. Jojola assesses his experience with the smartphone here.

Jojola will take part in a National Association of Black Journalists Digital Journalism Task Force (DJTF) webinar on smartphone reporting Tuesday at 12:30p.m. (ET).
