MySpace has teamed up with FOX News Channel and announced an exclusive partnership on MySpace uReport at http://www.myspace.com/ureport. The partnership, the first between MySpace and FOX News, gives the global MySpace community the ability to share their citizen journalist produced content with the MySpace community, as well as have the chance to be featured on FOX News.
Members of the MySpace uReport community can become "uReporters" by uploading video and photos tagged by specific news categories, including USA, World, Entertainment and Politics. This content could be featured in relevant programming on FOX News Channel and foxnews.com, with FOX News maintaining editorial control of the MySpace page. The community will also feature profiles of FOX News anchors, allowing members to link to their favorite network personalities.
Misenti added, "The MySpace uReport community presents an extraordinary opportunity to expand our network of citizen journalists and provides another platform on which FOX News can engage and connect with its fans.”
FOX News uReport is a service through which users can upload photos and videos to FOXNews from a computer or mobile device, allowing the audience to gather information and contribute to news coverage. Photos and videos submitted to uReport may be used on FOX News Channel or FOXNews.com.
