But what if there were a platform that addressed the problems of both the journalist and the reader by replacing the current “live blog” format with a fresh, constantly evolving mobile-first experience? And what if that platform accepted high-quality news field reports without the journalist having to master a complicated back-end CMS?

Good interview of Randy Abramson from BBC/BBG project called “Relay.” Relay is a framework for pulling in news content and connecting it to an audience. I think it is an innovative approach and the code is on GitHub!! Good story by Tom Grasty of Stroome, and other ventures.
