News flash: Linda Ellerbee grabs her place on the Internet

January 25, 1996

Linda Ellerbee, gadfly of TV journalism, is teaming up with Microsoft for a monthly interview "show" on the Internet.

"If this is the way journalism is headed, I don't want to be the last kid on the block to get there," Ms. Ellerbee said.

The transcribed conversation of "Encarta on the Record" will be relayed to a World Wide Web site, as will a video image of her and a guest that will be updated every eight seconds.

If users have the right equipment, they can hear the soundtrack, too.

The web site is http://www. microsoft.com/Encarta
