While live programming at the Wall Street Journal is meant to provide visitors with up-to-the minute news and analysis, it happens to be an effective means to produce numerous clips for use on article pages and in the paper’s video section, explains Shawn Bender, Editorial Director for Video at the Wall Street Journal Online.

Bender explains the use of Skype Video as the Journal’s primary live remote tool.

The paper has recently expanded its daily live programming to three and a half hours.

He was a panelist last week at the Beet.TV summit about online video news production and discovery.
