Action News with Chuck DeLonge is one of my favorite projects. While I am sworn to secrecy regarding most details about Action News and the man and legend Chuck Delonge, I can tell you that the website was made to provide three basic functions. First, it had to display video content from other sites on the web. Using OpenGraph and an embed custom field as a fallback, I was able to make it fairy simple to share links to other sites content all within the Action News website. Second, the site had to host full episodes of it’s own broadcast. Lastly, it had to integrate flawlessly with social media, to display up to the minute content from @ChuckDeLonge and other corespondents.
