CTV has launched a new website aimed at promoting citizen journalism.
MyNews.CTV.ca allows anyone to send digital photos and video to CTV News to potentially complement the private broadcaster’s news-gathering efforts.
The network said in a news release Thursday that CTV newsroom employees across the country will routinely monitor the content posted to MyNews.CTV.ca to determine its news value.
“News happens anywhere, any time, and this is a perfect way for Canadians to help us share any breaking news they are witnessing, as it occurs, with the rest of the country and the world,” said Mark Sikstrom, executive producer of CTV.ca.
“This site will work well with CTV’s newsgathering and provide a first-hand perspective on newsworthy events from those first on the scene.”
