Poynter Online interviewed Washington, D.C. WTOP radio reporter Neal Augenstein who ten months ago put away his laptop, Comrex Access unit, a Marantz PMD620 and a Shure SM63 microphone and went mobile with an iPhone and VeriCorder’s VC Audio Pro app. Neal hasn’t looked back and despite some issues with wind noise and typing is happy with the decision. Neal adds “Accept the fact that news gathering is changing, and that you’re helping pave the way for future mobile journalists. Take some risks, and break some ground.”
