KM Group's local news desks across Kent use iPhones and SoundCloud to provide audio, video and copy for the publisher's news sites, local radio stations and newspapers. It added the SoundCloud audio recording app so that "all reporters need to do is hit the orange button", - Martin Jefferies, chief reporter for Kent Online said. Reporters then upload the recorded interview to SoundCloud using the "private" option and the audio is available immediately for the Kent Online, its radio stations and the print journalists based in the newsrooms across the county. The KM Group news desks are also shooting video using the iPhone. Jefferies said that for planned pieces they use a more professional camera, tripod and boom microphone, but reporters use the iPhone to film breaking news, shooting from three or four different camera angles.
