PALO ALTO — “There are no TV journalists anymore,” says Charles Tillinghast, president and publisher of in this interview with Beet.TV is a joint venture of NBC Universal and Microsoft.

Nope, he didn’t mean that there’s any downsizing over at NBC News, he means that video news gathering is no longer television-centric but content is being created for the Web.  A few days ago, we visited him at the NBC headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza for this overview of the transformation of video journalism.

Charlie will be the featured speaker at the Beet.TV online media
roundtable taking place on the Stanford campus in a few hours.

Our session today is moderated by former CBS News President Andrew
Heyward and myself.  We have a great line up of folks from YouTube, CBS
Interactive, The New York Times, Adobe, VideoEgg, TurrnHere,, CNET, HP and many others.
We are not streaming live, but will provide numerous segments from the
sessions and one-on-one interviews over the next few weeks.

Kelsey and I will also cover the AlwaysOn conference which begins later today.
