NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 25, 2019
Stringr, a comprehensive marketplace that enables media organizations to source, edit and publish customized footage from 75,000+ videographers, has announced its work with Flood Communications’ News Channel Nebraska to ensure access to breaking news across Nebraska and the U.S.
Prior to working with Stringr, the network, which is a network collective of 15 radio and television stations in Nebraska, spent countless resources on travel throughout the state to cover relevant news events that needed to be covered for its viewers. With access to Stringr’s video marketplace, the company has become the sole news station in Nebraska to quickly reach news events in smaller communities across the state, as well as relevant out-of-state news.
“Stringr is quite literally delivering the last mile of video,” said Lindsay Stewart, CEO and Co Founder of Stringr. “Our work with News Channel Nebraska shows the benefits of Stringr’s capabilities in the clearest way possible. People want to access news sourced from every location no matter how remote, and we are thrilled to be a part of how NCN accomplishes this important task."
“The majority of our offices are located in Eastern Nebraska, and with a state that takes nearly eight hours to drive across it’s almost impossible to cover every breaking news story,” said Mike Flood, Founder of Flood Communications. “By activating the Stringr network, we’ve cut down on transportation and operational costs, while also continuing to tell the stories Nebraskans want to know from major snowstorms to Midterm elections.”
Stringr (http://www.stringr.com) is a comprehensive video marketplace that enables media organizations to source custom footage, edit and publish — under very tight deadlines. The company leverages the only nationwide network of more than 75k highly responsive videographers who provide broadcast-quality video in every major US market. Stringr is based in NYC and was founded in 2014 by Lindsay Stewart and Brian McNeill, who met at The Wharton School.
