CNN Breaks Ground in Use of Drone News Footage

Posted by


CNN announced that it has achieved a breakthrough in newsgathering by airing what a CNN spokesperson calls “the first-ever FAA-authorized use of UAV [unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone] video for news-gathering,” Multichannel News reports.

The footage aired today on CNN’s morning news show “New Day.” The network said the footage provides a bird’s-eye view of Selma, Alabama’s Edmund Pettus Bridge, which was a focal point of the events of Bloody Sunday during the civil rights movement.

“TV news operations had been testing drones for news gathering and, last fall, the FAA approved exemptions to drone regulations that allow TV and film production teams to use the small, unmanned aircraft to get killer shots without endangering any humans,” the story reports.

Here’s the video as posted by CNN:
