USA Today is taking its Personal Technology section to video. Tech columnists Ed Baig and Jefferson Graham will host “Talking Tech” with weekly segments becoming available on Thursdays. Video will be available at tech.usatoday.com or on iTunes.
The initial sponsor is AT&T with its branding campaign launched earlier this year. However preroll and synchronized banner units for Frontier Airlines, VisitFlorida and Microsoft’s “The Greatest Asset” spot played before the video during repeated refreshes. Prior to running the preroll unit, the screen says, “Video is always free thanks to support from our sponsor.” But at this point AT&T is not clearly visible as the advertiser.
