Fox News to use Google+ Hangouts for GOP candidate interviews


Fox News anchor Bret Baier will use Google+ Hangouts (group video chats) to moderate live discussions with each of the Republican presidential candidates and members of the public. First up is Mitt Romney on Nov. 15, to be followed by others later. Hangouts enable up to 10 people to simultaneously videoconference, and can also be broadcast for public viewing. KOMU-TV in Columbia, Mo., has used them as part of a live interactive newscast. || Related: News organizations and businesses can now create Google+ pages, and Poynter has one || Earlier: Public streaming, recording make Google Hangouts more useful for journalists | How to set up a virtual writers’ hangout in Google+
