We’re thrilled to announce that HBCU Gameday has selected Octopus Newsroom to manage their content and workflows.

HBCU Gameday is a multi-platform online media company that covers sports and culture of 101 Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the United States. Their content generates millions of impressions yearly through online and social media channels. Octopus news production system will allow their newsroom to provide even better coverage of sports events, including football, basketball, and more.


“We are excited to bring Octopus into our newsroom to unite a lot of the technology that we’ve been leveraging separately. The ability to bring our video server into our rundowns directly and automatically update scripts in real time through our prompter will really improve our efficiency, saving us valuable time. I’ve worked with other newsroom computer systems in the past earlier in my career. But the functionality and cost savings led me directly to Octopus when it was time to choose a system for our company. We couldn’t be more thrilled to start this relationship.”
