The best storytelling gets better

By Todd Franko (Contact)


Published March 29, 2008

I've always believed that newspapers can tell the best stories.

We've always had the depth, the reporting time and the space to tell it better than radio or television.

I believe this while acknowledging that our TV friends have historically done a strong job grabbing onto people stories that often resonate longer with an audience.

But newspapers are getting better at injecting humanity into the newspages. It's happening in time to coincide with newspapers' evolution into video on their web sites.

Today is a great example for The Vindy with the story of Tabitha Fiorenza of Struthers.

The package is solid in print via the work of reporter Bill Alcorn and photographer Bill Lewis. But what takes the plight of Tabitha and her parents to a level we couldn't have taken you last year is Lewis' video on vindy.com. 

I first saw the video two weeks ago, and I had to watch it several times. “Hi. My name is Tabitha and I need a new heart.”

It's a special story. I really enjoy stories like this. Please check out your front page today. Then check out the video. Then go back to the print story for a second read.

She's absolutely precious.
