All wrapped up
After a less-than-conventional Australian Open 2021, competed under some of the strictest quarantine regulations in the world, the event has already topped the usage charts for January and early February. This highlights package here has added value to our video coverage.
UGC: It’s not just for cat videos
Excellent work by our UGC desk secured footage and interviews from inside the hotels of Australian Open competitors. This included French Open champion Iga Swiatek filmed working out. A combination of local network up-pick and Reuters material from on the ground enabled us to tell the full story as organisers worked tirelessly to make the event happen. To see all the content powered by UGC follow the link.
We are constantly hearing and responding to your calls for more ‘lighthearted’ news stories. A great example from January is Frank Rothwell. He may not be a familiar sporting name, but after surviving cancer and then at the age of 70 rowing across the Atlantic single-handedly, he deserves to be. More than 200 broadcasters used footage of him arriving in Antigua at the end of his epic 56-day journey.
