New reporter network service aiming to help aspiring presenters, film makers and editors is recruiting
LONDON, Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A new reporter network service, set to revolutionise UK media has launched to help aspiring presenters, film makers and editors change the way that we consume media in the UK.
WinkBall, the video reporter network service, is expanding its efforts to introduce a membership network scheme with the aim of creating a national and global network of reporters.
Billed as the answer to modern day news telling, WinkBall.com is the brainchild of Goldsmiths lecturer Dr James Ohene-Djan and entrepreneur Duncan Barclay.
Dr James Ohene-Djan says, "In an ever changing digital world, we wanted to create a solution to the decline in regional news as well as breathe life into on the ground reporting in the UK and globally. We are passionate about news and - especially - championing community stories. Media can be a tricky industry to get into and we want to use our skills to support those aspiring to a career in their chosen field. We believe WinkBall to be the modern day answer to real, relevant news reporting today."
WinkBall covers local, regional and national events from the point of view of the main protagonists and in order to capture the public reaction. Joining relevant sponsors and stories is at the heart of WinkBall's model, recognising that all of the UK's 7 million businesses need to promote and communicate via digital media as well as the big brands.
Notes To Editors
winkball.com create reports that capture the heartbeat of cultural, professional and social events at the point of maximum relevance and experience.
WinkBall wants to initially build a base of 1000 reporters to be able to reach all over the UK before branching out internationally. WinkBall sees itself as a supplier of quality content to local TV and news sites rather than a rival, but believes their model will better help fund media professionals who wish to work within local communities as well as specialise in their specific areas of interest.
