Be A Part of ANN's Annual Effort To 'OSHCast' The World!
Way, Way, WAY back in the dark ages of the Internet (like in the
1990s, man...), the folks who created the Aero-News Network were
the first aviation news organization to post news and updates,
every day, live from the grounds of Wittman Field and the Holy Land
of Oshkosh. This was LONG before anyone else could even spell
"World Wide Web" and well before any true competition arose to
mimic our efforts to cover the greatest airshow on/over earth.
Since then, we've done something amazing, EVERY YEAR, to raise the
bar in terms of covering this event in new, exciting and intriguing
ways... and this year we have a big update to share with you.
ANN and Aero-TV will be hosting an upgraded version of our
amazing daily wrap-up at the end of the primary days of this year's
show -- an effort that will serve as an extension of our soon-to-be
introduced "Airborne" Aero-TV programming initiative. These
extensive feature programs are designed to offer you SOLID,
INDEPENDENT, EXPERT, IMPASSIONED coverage of the Oshkosh
extravaganza... in great detail -- i.e., the good, the not-so-good
and the truly remarkable. These programs will be hosted by a number
of ANN's top Aviation Journalists as well as some popular and
knowledgeable "Surprise Hosts" who will help us with those aspects
of the programming that they are best suited for.
Each of the Airborne segments will first be webcast right from
ANN's Oshkosh HQ, in the early evening of the day and then
immediately uploaded for ready viewing and/or downloading to ANN's
own Aero-TV site, YouTube and several other major online
syndication partners. Please note that each program will be
available, to those with the requisite bandwidth and net access in
FULL HD. These archives will be maintained for years to come... and
when you're slogging through the snow in 2025, we'll be around to
show you how cool Oshkosh was in 2011.
It will be fun, exciting, fast-paced, interesting and totally
devoted to covering the world of Oshkosh with the same innovative
professionalism that we brought to the mix when we were the first
to bring you daily online reports... or when we started bringing
you the first daily audio programing from Oshkosh... or when we
started bring you the first daily video programming from Oshkosh...
and so many other "FIRSTS" ... each of which is
now mimicked (and usually not all that well) by other organizations
following our lead.
And now... just days after the webcasting of the amazing
1000th(!!!) video feature from the Aero-TV studios, we want to
invite you to participate in the next big leap in ANN and Aero-TV
coverage of this pivotal event. We're looking for your requests,
your tips, your ideas and whatever you think ANN NEEDS TO COVER to
make this year's coverage the very best yet.
Got OSHKOSH 2011 News For ANN???
We would like to invite you to submit your press materials and
news packages to us prior to the event in order to allow our team
to do as much advance preparation as possible and to get a feel for
the stories that will be prominent this year. The sooner we get
such data, the more we can do with it, and the more likely it is
that you'll find yourself featured in a future ANN newscast, Audio
Aero-Cast or Aero-TV Webcast.
Submissions are strongly encouraged by E-mail though postal
"snail mail" is acceptable so long as it is received in our office
ASAP. No aviation entity currently gets to as many people, every
day, as ANN is doing now, so we encourage you to get in contact
with us if you think you might have a story idea or a subject worth
If you have any story ideas or suggestions as to how we might
augment our coverage of this event, please be sure to bring it to
our attention ASAP, so that we make the proper assignments for
ANN's Special Event coverage has been a distinguishing feature
of our organization since DAY ONE. No one does as much with special
coverage of aviation's pivotal events as ANN, and we continue to
set the bar higher each time we tackle an event. It's a tough,
exhausting, brutally intensive process -- and read by hundreds of
thousands of Aero-News readers all over the world.
Of special interest, this year, is the ever-increasing presence
of ANN's tremendously popular Aero-TV programming. As you may know,
ANN introduced the aviation world to a sneak-peek at Aero-TV at
AirVenture 2007 -- and the business hasn't been quite the same
since (and even the copy-cats can't match the quality or quantity
of our work). The very conservative 'beta' version of Aero-TV
resulted in the production of dozens of Video Aero-Casts during the
week long event and the shooting and production of dozens more --
while our work at Oshkosh 2008, 2009 and 2010 blew the doors off
the business. Since then, OVER 1000 amazing programs have been
presented... yet another record unequalled by ANY OTHER aviation
news entity. No one presented as comprehensive or as expert a slate
of NewMedia offerings at Oshkosh as did Aero-News and Aero-TV...
and we're looking to treat OSHKOSH 2011 much the
These Aero-Video products can be played on your laptop or PC as
