Media News - Thursday, April 12, 2012
Two not-for-profit news organisations in the United States have teamed up to launch a new channel on YouTube dedicated to investigaive reporting. The channel, which is due to launch in July, aims to become a "hub for high-quality, high-impact investigative videos" and is backed by USD 800,000 in funding from the Knight Foundation. It is a partnership between the Center for Investigative Reporting and the Investigative News Network, who will work together to promote the channel and to engage users through social media and online chats. The channel will feature videos from major broadcasters - including NPR, ABC and the New York Times - and will also seek contributions from freelance video journalists and independent filmmakers around the world. The CIR said in a release that journalists would be trained in audience engagement and other best practices for online video. Revenue from the channel will be used to subsidise public interest journalism projects. (Journalism.co.uk)
