Belo Corp. picks AP ENPS for group-wide news production

Belo Corp.’s 16 television, cable news operations and Washington DC Bureau are upgrading their news production systems to AP ENPS, giving their staffs integrated, industry-leading capabilities for getting local news on the air, the Web, mobile devices and social media.


ENPS will unite reporters, writers, editors and producers across all of Belo’s news operations. When ENPS is fully installed, staff in any location will easily be able to collaborate and share stories and ideas with colleagues in Belo newsrooms nationwide. With smartphones, tablets or laptops, Belo staff outside of their newsrooms will use the AP ENPS Mobile application to write scripts and control other functions. Replacing paper, the Tablet Story Viewer will also allow anchors to read scripts electronically on the set.


“AP and Belo have a history of working together that dates back to the creation of the Texas Associated Press in the late 1800s, and we are excited about building on the relationship with ENPS,” said Craig Harper, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Belo. “Agility is key to engaging our viewers today, wherever they are and on whatever devices they use, and, as the best and most innovative news production system, ENPS can help us make that happen. I expect ENPS to deliver for Belo today and grow with our needs in the future.” 


Lee Perryman, director, AP ENPS said: ‘We appreciate Belo’s confidence in the AP. Their selection of ENPS underscores a continued commitment to excellence and to investing in the most competitive solutions for serving audiences in more innovative ways.”
