Col. Andrew Mutter, Defense Media Activity, Gene Brink, DoD News

For the past decade, the Defense Department has operated its own 24/7 cable news channel. But as of today, what was once known as the Pentagon Channel has gone dark. Cost was one factor. But officials say they also decided they could do a better job of reaching their audience if they focused their resources on an all-online, on-demand and streaming video format. Col. Andrew Mutter is the deputy director of the Defense Media Activity, and Gene Brink is the director of DoD News, the new name for the cross-platform media operation. On In Depth with Francis Rose, they explained to guest host Jared Serbu why the Pentagon Channel was launched in the first place, and why they decided to ditch the broadcast format.

Ft. Meade commander sees more growth after BRAC

In a column for Federal News Radio, Ft. Meade Commander Col. Dan Thomas says, "By this fall, the official worker population of Fort Meade will have grown to more than 48,000.
