SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Chat Sports, the rapidly growing sports media startup, has launched Chat Sports Local today. This exciting new feature has solved sports content discovery on the local level. Anyone in the US can find articles, tweets and video highlights on the local pro & NCAA teams from all the great sources on the web with one-click by using Chat Sports Local.
“This new feature was built specifically with our users in mind,” said James Yoder, CEO and co-founder of Chat Sports. “We are feedback junkies and a large segment of our users expressed that they live away from their hometown. Using Chat Sports to keep up with their favorite hometown teams was great, but many times they wanted to get news and highlights of the local sports teams in their new hometown. The Chat Sports Local feature solves this desire.”
Site visitors using the local feature will see news and video highlights teams in their geographical area, delivered from national sources, local newspaper coverage and top blogs. “I use the local page almost more than my personal Chat Sports news feed. Being a Bay Area transplant, I use the local feature to keep up with the Giants and 49ers, while not forcing them to fill up my personal page, it is really useful.”
Users can access the local page by clicking the local icon in the top right of any page on the site or by directly visiting ChatSports.com/local
The product is curating over 8,000 pieces of content from over 2,000 sports sources each day. Chat Sports has raised $1MM in seed funding to date.
