GeekWire is launching a new daily video show, featuring three stories in just about 3 minutes — a quick, convenient and fun way to get the most important details on the most interesting stories from GeekWire and the world of tech every afternoon.
That’s the tl;dr version of GeekWire’s “TLDR,” a new daily rundown on all things tech, hosted and produced by journalist Starla Sampaco. The show launches next week on YouTube, Facebook and GeekWire, and will ultimately be available as an audio podcast, daily email, on Instagram Stories, and as a briefing on Amazon Alexa and other smart speakers.
TLDR will be released every weekday afternoon, just in time to watch on your last break or evening commute on the West Coast, or as you settle in for the evening in other parts of the country.
The show will draw heavily on reporting from our Seattle-based news team, including coverage of tech giants Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Apple and Facebook; Pacific NW startups; cloud computing, aerospace, science, life sciences, games gadgets, virtual reality, AI, the impact of tech on cities, and lots of general geekiness.
Check out a sneak preview of TLDR above, and follow the show by subscribing to GeekWire’s YouTube channel. You can also subscribe here for email updates. Stay tuned for more details as we launch the daily show next week.
As part of the TLDR launch, we’re pleased to welcome host and producer Starla Sampaco, a University of Washington graduate who double-majored in journalism as well as law, societies and justice. Starla has reported, hosted and produced news segments and shows for a variety of outlets, including broadcast stations KING 5 and KIRO 7 in the Seattle region, public affairs network TVW, news site Seattle Globalist and others. Reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow her @starlasampaco on Twitter.
This is part of GeekWire’s broader expansion into video as we celebrate our 7th anniversary tonight at the GeekWire Bash. We’ve created a dedicated podcast and video studio space as part of a recent expansion of our office Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, and we have a more surprises in the works.
