Leave your comments here! What did you think of the video?


This longtime reader welcomes the video version of your excellent news service; much easier on these old eyes (in more ways than one, wink!). Thanks so much for providing it, so I can take a break from all the reading I do online and listen to important information delivered by a mellifluous voice. Cool tie, btw. :-)


I totally welcome this weekly video "update" that is so well done and diverse in stories covered. I also will use this video ( and your whole weekly news) as "required reading" in my Native Americans and Contemporary Society course. If you are looking for feedback- please keep this segment and it would be better if it came out on the same day each week (for assignment consistency. :)


I like the video update! Love the sharks! Wife has great taste!


I appreciate the newscast ,Vincent, and thank you and your staff for all your work it takes getting it out to the internet. I rely on it everyday to keep up with ICT news. I would like to see it on a daily basis but if it is once/week a consistent day would be better. I agree with the above teacher's comment. To use it for teaching and gathering info having a steady day would be beneficial. Gratitude!
