What is newscasting?

Newscasting is the act of broadcasting news to the public through television programs. The TV host reports on current events, weather forecasts, sports coverage, traffic reports, and other relevant topics to their target audience. The content is usually produced in the studio newsroom by the journalists. Newscasts are what we normally see on television today.

What is crowdcasting?

Crowdcasting is a combination of broadcasting and crowdsourcing. It’s the practice of obtaining content from viewers to be used in live television broadcasts. TV networks typically ask viewers to submit photos and videos of breaking news events. Additionally, if journalists find an interesting photo or video on social media, they will contact the owner for permission to put the content on air. Other than requesting for photos and videos, TV networks occasionally reach out to their audience for their opinion to bring in new insight on certain topics.
