Today, we are pleased to announce the successful launch of Salt Lake City, UT station KTVX on its news production suite, CORE:news. Nexstar-owned KTVX now has a complete news production, media management, collaboration and archiving solution in CORE:news. KTVX currently produces an average of 8 hours of news per weekday and 3 hours of news every weekend, and its late news, ABC4 Utah News at 10, was recently honored as the Best Newscast in Utah by the Utah Headliners Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (just 1 of 30 honors the station received in June by the same organization).
Nexstar’s KTVX launches with Bitcentral CORE:news.
“Optimizing our resources and producing the best content possible are top priorities for us,” said George B. Severson, director of news for KTVX. “Bitcentral’s CORE:news system assists us with being more efficient as well as more effective with managing quality control and the overall review of content before it hits the air. It takes a team to put shows on the air and this system creates a great platform which supports that team effort.”
CORE:news is an easy-to-use modular news production platform that combines content discovery, capture, editing, playout, publishing, collaboration, asset management and archiving into a single unified workflow. Bitcentral extends its congratulations and appreciation to the staff of KTVX for their partnership throughout the implementation process and looks forward to being a valued partner moving forward.
