Regina McCombs, The Poynter Institute's Faculty for Multimedia and Mobile wrote Chapter One, "Telling Stories," which leads off Kobre's "Videojournalism: Multimedia Storytelling" (Focal Press, 2012).

"This book is intended for students and professionals alike who want to learn how to find a riveting story; gain access to charismatic characters who can tell their own tales; shoot candid clips; expertly interview the players; and record clear, clean sound," said Kobre, who directs the photo and videojournalism sequence at San Francisco State University, California. "Readers will learn how to write a script with pizzazz and, finally, edit the material into a piece worthy of five minutes of a viewer's attention ... while never losing sight of the main point: telling a great story."
"This was a fun project to be part of and it's a wonderful finished product," said McCombs. "I love teaching how core journalism skills can make storytelling more powerful, and I appreciate that this book's emphasis is not only on technical knowledge, but on building great pieces of videojournalism overall."McCombs, who joined Poynter in 2008, teaches multimedia, and social and mobile journalism. She was the senior producer for multimedia at StarTribune.com in Minneapolis-St. Paul for 11 years. Other contributors to the book include:
