    Publisher Randy Morton said "Boro Live Update" will give "our users of and readers of our paper at look breaking news stories and news we are following right up to the moment.”
    Morton said Boro Live Update "gives us another way to deliver the news in an easy way for people to stay current. We have the best news gathering team in the area and producing a live show Monday through Friday gets that news out even faster."
    The show will be broadcast live every weekday at 2 p.m. from the video studio inside the Statesboro Herald office on Proctor Street. Morton said people can watch the show live on or anytime on the same site if they can't make it right at 2 p.m. An archive of all news updates will be kept on the site.
    Boro Live Update will be produced by Statesboro Herald assistant editor Eddie Ledbetter, and Herald reporter/videographer Phil Boyum will direct the technical aspects of the show. Herald sales executive Reagan Daly is the anchor, delivering the news each day.
    "With Studio Statesboro and all our sports programming, a news show is the next logical progression in our multimedia efforts," Ledbetter said. "I really hope people tune in at 2 p.m. to watch it live, but the beauty of the Web is you can watch it any time you want." recently marked the one-year anniversary of Studio Statesboro, the magazine-type vodcast that airs weekdays after 4 p.m.
    Morton called Studio Satesboro "a marvelously produced show that shows off the events and happenings in our community. But Studio Statesboro wasn't designed to produce programming for hard news like crime or school board meetings or other breaking news. Boro Live Update does exactly that."  
    In addition to live video, Morton said soon will offer live audio casts.
    "Stay tuned for what we'll bring you next," Morton said. "It'll be exciting and it'll be fun."
