  34. 34. "We increased the reach of the NewsHours live-stream by having it hosted elsewhere including the Sunlight Foundation and Huffington Post. We also hosted a map with live AP election data on our site and combined it with our map- centric Patchwork Nation collaboration. We used CoveritLive to power a live-blog of results, analysis and reports from the field. Extra, the NewsHours site for students and teachers, solicited opinion pieces. "Many of the tools we experimented with to cover the 2008 election -- Google Docs, Twitter, Facebook -- have since matured as newsroom resources. Except for a few momentary hiccups, Twitter was as stable as we could have hoped on Election Day." - Dave Gustafson, PBSMonday, 28 March 2011
  35. 35. "On election night, more than a dozen NewsHour staffers worked in the same [Google] document in real-time -- filing reports from the field and transcribing quotes from NewsHour analysts and notable guests on other networks. "When [Mike] typed a pound sign (#), that signaled the paragraph was ready and I immediately pasted it into CoveritLive. "In a different spreadsheet, staff kept track of which races were called by other news organizations and when. We also used the embedded chat feature in Google Docs to communicate while editing and adding information." - Dave Gustafson, PBSMonday, 28 March 2011
  36. 36. I venture to bet that we were the only network last night with an election graphics system running in Google Chrome. Thanks to our partners at Ustream posting a giant promotion on their home page for a full day our election live-stream garnered more than 250,000 views. We also notified our 73,000 iPhone app users of our special coverage plans. Our app download traffic tripled. As for Facebook, we were blown away by the breaking news engagement we got. It has us reconsidering that strategy. A separate two-day effort targeting NewsHour ads on Facebook pages of specific political campaigns grew our fans about 7.3 percent in that short period.Monday, 28 March 2011
