New York, NY (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
In nine days, voters in Scotland will go to the polls to make a momentous decision: whether to secede from the United Kingdom. To cover this historic event, Mashable is teaming up with the UK’s award-winning Channel 4 News.
In the days ahead, Mashable will be publishing dispatches from Channel 4 News correspondents, including Jon Snow, Gary Gibbon, Paul Mason and Jackie Long, as well as videos produced by the Channel 4 News team. On September 18, Mashable will present live coverage of the vote itself, including live video content and online analysis from the Channel 4 News team.
“We have long admired the smart and urgent journalism produced by Channel 4 News, and were proud to feature stories by their foreign correspondents during the Gaza crisis in July,” said Jim Roberts, Executive Editor and Chief Content Officer of Mashable. “We think this partnership will be a great way of bringing this major news event to the connected generation that makes up Mashable’s 35-million-strong audience.”
Ben de Pear, editor of Channel 4 News, said: “I am delighted that Channel 4 News is teaming up with Mashable for this historic referendum vote. This could be the biggest story of our generation, and together with Mashable we believe our specialist journalism will reach a larger audience and in particular the young people who can help shape the future.”
