(Austin, Texas) December 23, 2022 – Happy holidays from everyone at latakoo!
To celebrate, our team had a lot of fun writing and producing this video poem, inspired by ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.
It describes a news story coming together, explains how latakoo was there to lend a helping hand – and most importantly, thanks journalists for their hard work every day.
latakoo’s Holiday Poem
‘Twas the time before deadline, when all through the newsroom
The news creatures were stirring, when suddenly – BOOM!!!
Breaking news sent your crews scrambling out the door
Remembering their IFB, car keys, and more;
latakoo was ready, technology built with care
Making sure your uploads are always there;
Journalists were hustling to confirm details in time
Turning stories about politics, schools and crime;
Setting up for live shots as the newscast draws near
As busy producers call the shots in their ear;
The anchors were all set and snug in their chairs
Just hoping their lead story soon will be there;
With minutes to go, there’s no need to be stressed
Because your upload technology is always the best;
The package is done, and soon latakoo is sending
Flight and Pilot the best tools to have under your wing;
You’ve made slot again, latakoo brought the urgency
Helping you channel your inner Ron Burgundy;
A big thank you from us, at this special time of year
When even the grumpiest photogs are bursting with holiday cheer!
At latakoo, we hope your holidays are merry and bright,
Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good Flight!
