BOONE COUNTY - KOMU became the 1st local television station Thursday to air a live on-air Google Plus video chat.
The group video chat is called "Hangout" and it aired live during KOMU 8 News at 5. Google viewers were able to share their experiences with this new social networking site on-air with television viewers.
KOMU plans to make Google + video chat a regular part of its upcoming U_News @ 4 program that starts September 12th on KOMU. We'll also be experimenting with this technology during our 5pm Central time newscast.
Not on Google +? You can still chat with our anchors and watch them behind the scenes of KOMU News here.
