Laz Abalos
KMBC Channel 9

KMBC Channel 9 cameraman Laz Abalos and his partner in podcasting, an Iowan named Frank Barrett, are admitted social-media geeks. They make a formidable tag team as the co-hosts of the NextGenMedia podcast, their sporadic gabfest about the latest happenings in the technology and media worlds. They've recorded more than 60 shows, dating back to their March 2010 debut with Channel 9 anchor Kris Ketz. Abalos and Barrett give a sarcastic yet self-deprecating look at everything tech, from Spotify and Google+ to the use of Quick Response codes during the Ames Straw Poll. They even go basic, giving tips on how to dump cable and not miss your favorite TV shows. It's a fun listen. If that wasn't enough, Abalos also gives a behind-the-scenes look at life as a television-news cameraman at his underrated blog, HeyCameraman. From the aftermath of a plane crash in Higginsville, Missouri, to the victims of sexual abuse at the hands of priests, Abalos posts powerful photos that add depth to the stories on the newscasts at 5, 6 and 10 p.m.
