Our News Now! is a 24 hour digital video news service bringing national and international stories to communities of color worldwide. After 80 years of TV news, mainstream organizations do not represent America in story selection or staff. The issues, concerns and sensibilities of millions of viewers and potential viewers are ignored. Even as America has seen fit to diversify its entertainment, social views and its leadership, the business of TV/mainstream journalism remains the same.
Our News Now! will be the source of information for 50 million people in this much ignored US market by providing 24 video news on PCs, cell phones, iPods and other wireless devices. It will also reach hundreds of millions more around the globe who are interested in the cultures of communities of color.
