One Minute News Launches Groundbreaking Millennial Road Trip Web Series via YouTube Channel
GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — One Minute News (OMN), a new Millennial news channel on YouTube, launches a groundbreaking road trip video series titled “NEWS BY HUMANS” that follows two young credentialed reporters on a two month multi-city road trip assignment across America. One Minute News hits the road to report on the pulse of Millennials, the largest generation in the history of America, during a critical election year.
Accompanied for different legs of the journey by local entertainers, political leaders, writers, opinion makers and viewers, One Minute News will report from over 50 cities and attend political, cultural and sporting events to connect with Millennials on the ground. One Minute News’s on-the-ground election coverage will include the presidential and vice presidential debates.
Bridging the content gap between citizen journalism and traditional newscasts, One Minute News provides fresh observations and insights on the day’s top stories, but also the trending, fascinating, unexpected and underreported.
Douglas (Doug) Greenlaw, CEO of One Minute News and a former President of Advertising for MTV, says, “This young generation, the most influential since the baby boomers, is no longer consuming news the old fashioned way. So we set out to pioneer a new made-for-digital kind of newscast and news channel with a unique approach to news curation, analysis and reporting that appeals to a generation that prefers on-demand video and quick video hits of shorter form news – across devices and often as a shared/social experience.”
Michael Evans, Executive Producer of One Minute News says, “Electoral events are inherently theatrical. We want to cover political events in a way that breaks through this facade, to provide an accurate snapshot of the nation during a time of change.”
Charlie Berens, Producer/Reporter of One Minute News says, “This is less about the politics and more about the people we find and the stories they tell us on the road.”
