Daily “Beyond Today” Commentary: “BT Daily”
November 17, 2011
This week, Beyond Today presenters Steve Myers and Darris McNeely began producing a new feature for the Web titled “BT Daily.“ BT Daily will be a regular, five days a week, Web-based video commentary on relevant, current topics in the news and items of interest to our audience.
BT Daily is an effort to start a conversation and to bring people behind the scenes and into a deeper relationship with the process that is behind the Beyond Today television program and the topics that are covered.
Mr. Myers said on the opening segment, “We’re going to look at news events. We’re going to look at different topics whether it’s marriage, whether it’s family, whether it’s schooling, whether it’s education, whatever it may be—politics. How does it apply? What is it and how is it relevant to the message of Jesus Christ?”
Beyond Today presenter Gary Petty will do segments when at the home office for monthly videotaping. He will also do some remote material from his home in San Antonio, Texas.
Most BT Daily segments will be done in the home office production studio. As the men travel, some recording will be done remotely, using laptop computers to record material. The goal is to provide regular daily commentary on life, news and biblical questions sent in by viewers. BT Daily is the first step in developing relevant daily commentary on the Web for our growing Beyond Today audience.
You will find BT Daily on the United Church of God main website and also on a new BT Daily page in the Beyond Today section of our website. The first two dailies are now online. We welcome your comments and feedback on this new project.
