YouTube Newswire Launch

Youtube launches new service curating eye witness videos.

YouTube launches YouTube Newswire. In partnership with Storyful, a social news agency, YouTube is going to offer a curated feed of the most newsworthy eyewitness videos of the day, which have been verified by Storyful’s team of editors and are embeddable from the original sources.

With the Newswire, YouTube hopes to provide journalists with an invaluable resource to discover news video around major events, and to highlight eyewitness video that offers new perspectives on important news stories.

The Newswire will feature global and regional feeds that surface the most relevant videos in different parts of the world. 

Youtube has already been the platform for eye witnesses and citizen journalists to share their videos. Now YouTube is organizing and verifying them. More than 5 million hours of news video is watched on YouTube every day, and the role of the eyewitness has never had a more vital place in the newsgathering process. 

The first videos have been already published on YouTube Newswire.
