Thanks to quick thinking and teamwork, AP staffers in Germany got to the scene fast and immediately went live. Photos, video and text stories were sent to customers within minutes.
AP live video was available hours before other outlets.
“Our team in Germany leapt into action late Wednesday after seeing reports about the shooting and then continued working through the night,” News Director for Europe and Africa Anna Johnson said. “That quick reaction, resourcefulness and smart news judgment allowed the AP to get text, photos and video, including live video, out to customers incredibly fast.”
