Here is the latest report that Huffington post, a news website and live streaming service Ustream have recently announced a partnership and according to them, it will be helps the Huff Post to embed the live video of their news corp on it’s official site.
On this partnership, Huffington Post’s President Arianna Huffington said “We launched Off The Bus in 2007 to go beyond the one-dimensional horse-race aspect of election coverage and actually respond to the widespread dissatisfaction about the way campaigns are covered,”
“So I’m delighted that we are partnering with Ustream for Off The Bus 2012, and renewing our commitment to holding politicians accountable and telling the stories that need to be told by tapping into a wide range of voices and perspectives.”
In addition to the partnership, Huffington Post and Ustream are giving a call out for nominations to anyone who thinks they or someone they know has what it takes to be a citizen journalist for this year’s “Off the Bus Cover the Conventions Contest.”
Winners selected from the nomination pool will have all their lodging and expenses paid as they report from on the scene of this year’s political conventions in Charlotte or Tampa. Additionally, Ustream will be offering exclusive training and support to the winners to enhance their skills to become an All-Star Ustream citizen journalist.
To be considered, send a video (less than two minutes) with reasons why you or someone you nominated should cover the convention, then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
