ONA urges FCC to preserve an open internet

Net neutrality is essential to promoting diverse perspectives, innovation and the free flow of information. Repealing net neutrality rules would give ISPs the ability to influence, or even outright control, what sites and services Americans can access online. We urge the FCC to hold hearings around the country to hear the public’s concerns about this issue.

Adventures in 360 with ONA Alaska

ONA Alaska leader Kyle Hopkins has been experimenting with immersive storytelling at his KTUU Anchorage newsroom. The goal: If one of their broadcast photographers, reporters or multimedia journalists is going somewhere cool, they’ll have a 360 cam in their kit. See what gear his team has been using, what worked and what didn’t and the amazing packages they put together of the Alaskan wilderness. Adventures in 360.
