- Football fans who can't wait until regular season play can now get a sneak peek at training camps from Big Ten Network's Tom Dienhart's Instagram account.
- Dienhart has been shooting 15-sec videos of practices while on the network's Big Ten fall camp tour; so far, Dienhart has a modest following, but the journalist believes Instagram Video could become a bigger piece of the network's strategy.
- Since the Big Ten Network is the in-house network for the conference, Dienhart has access that many of the dailies don't, giving fans more of a behind the scenes look.
From the article:
"The Big Ten Network's Tom Dienhart, who has been a college football writer since 1990, this month can add "social video journalist" to his resume—he has been shooting dozens of Instagram videos as he attends gridiron practices throughout the conference's Midwestern footprint. Dienhart's one of the first journos to employ the nascent, 15-second videos feature on Instagram, which has attracted millions of users with its photo-sharing capabilities since 2010."
