WLWT Expands Blogging Tools

WLWT-TV/DT 5 has expanded the tools at their disposal to cover stories as they happen.

Now, the station's website, is offering Live Blogs to cover some of the bigger stories in the Tri-State, including the current Ryan Widmer murder trial.

Widmer is accused of murdering his wife Sarah in August 2008 in their Hamilton Township, Ohio home. (Hamilton Twp. is in Warren County, which is where Kings Island is.)

Anyway, we're guessing that this tool was one reason WLWT wanted to have computers in the courtroom during the McCafferty trial, as we covered previously here. Apparently, this judge was not so strict and has allowed the use of the computers.

We're sure several other news sites use the tool, and we know that WWE uses it for their WWE Universe fan section, to do live blog coverage of Monday Night Raw and Pay-Per-View events.
