"Live video has a lot of opportunity for us," says Jeff Moriarty, VP for Digital Products, in this interview with Beet TV

Last month boston.com launched a live, regularly scheduled sports show aimed at the site's large midday audience.  Beet TV interviewed Caleb Solomon, Managing Editor on the benefits of live online video programing, shortly after the launch.

'Boston Sports Live,' is 15 to 20 minutes long, allowing viewers to tweet at the show's interviews, analysis and video segments.

Moriarty says the next step is for reporters to stream live video at the site of breaking news, giving boston.com's six million unique monthly viewers the opportunity to watch live coverage of various topics.

In this video inteview, he explains what users want from online videos and how boston.com maintains a range of short and long form video content.

We spoke to him last week at the paidContent conference in Manhattan.

Moriarty will be a panelist at the Beet.TV video news meetup on June 4 at MSNBC.com at 30 Rock in Manhattan.
