Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Maria Aragon vs. James Richardson
Together these two names are responsible for an impressive 10% of all of our video views this year.
And this week, something happened that I never thought possible. A video knocked Maria Aragon AND a 2011 flood video from the top two positions as the number one viewed video on our website this year to date.
The video? Our fun infotainment piece on the new James A. Richardson International Airport featuring Free Press reporter Geoff Kirbyson.
No one can deny Maria Aragon's amazing and international rise to fame was an impressive sight to see. We produced eight videos about her and four of them are in the top 15 views videos of the year.
What surprised me was the incredible interest in the new airport terminal.
We did four videos on the terminal in total, three of them in the last week, and they all received massive hits. It's nice to see the level of interest there is in the biggest construction project in Winnipeg's history.
Judging by the reaction in Tania Kohut's video (http://bcove.me/vs77ak9c) from Sunday, travellers love the terminal 'just the way it is' -- ahem.
