TV news has a problem with younger viewers: It doesn't have enough of them.
It's why some outlets have signed on with tech entrepreneur Adriano Farano, who is betting he can bring video journalism to young viewers who are growing up with smartphones, tablets and the convenience of viewing what they want whenever they want.
Farano is the co-founder and chief executive of Watchup, an app that can set up a customized streaming online video newscast using stories from established TV news outlets. "We have long-term vision," he said. "What Netflix and iTunes have done for entertainment is what we want to do for the news industry."
