CNN offers video podcasts starting today

Thanks to Lost Remote for the news that CNN will today begin offering six video podcasts, targeted primarily at those falling into the young demographic category. According to David Payne, CNN.com senior vice president and general manager, "For the most part, the podcasting audience skews much younger than CNN’s television viewers and, perhaps surprisingly, somewhat younger than even users of CNN.com. They don’t necessarily want to see polished newscasts, but they want to see the action and make judgments for themselves."

The podcasts include:

* All Access – Backstage Pass: A behind the scenes look at how the news is created and delivered. (This one definitely piques my interest.)

* SHOWandTELL: A look at cool tools and technologies.

* Ask Glenn: Q&A with Glenn Beck.

* The Grist: "Odd but true stories."

* Now in the News – Commuter Edition: Fast news updates for people on the go.

* In Case You Missed It: "Sights and sounds" from major news events and the "most dramatic video from the day."
