Former KTLA Reporter David Begnaud Reflects on Moving Away From Traditional Newscasts

Our sister site FishbowlLA interviews former KTLA reporter David Begnaud about his latest career move to Larry King‘s new home, online network Ora TV. Begnaud talks about making the jump from traditional television:

“For me, the tough part, always, was getting breaking news and then having to wait for the evening newscast. I met Larry King and his executive producer Wendy Walker, and she asked me if I wanted to bring my dream, vision of a breaking news show to Ora. It was definitely a big risk to move from ten years in traditional TV to online.”

The program is entirely elastic, with Begnaud and his team doing as many daily short blasts as the news dictates. “We’ve done five, we’ve done seven, we’ve done close to ten in a day,” he explains.  “I’ll give you the news on your phone, as it happens. That New York cop story that’s breaking right now? I’m literally looking at my editor, she’s editing it right now. We’ll probably have it online in the next ten minutes.”
