YouTube, KGO Team For Local News
YouTube and ABC7 are encouraging residents of the Bay Area to submit their news videos to the producers via YouTube Direct. ABC7 will then feature the ones deemed newsworthy on TV, their uReport site, and on their YouTube channel. "Though YouTube is a global site, it's often local videos that are most relevant to your life," says YouTube News Manager Olivia Ma. "When people use camcorders and mobile phones to capture newsworthy events in their neighborhoods and upload them to YouTube, they're broadening the window into our own communities.
