Finding the future top stories on Zapaday is easy, but finding journalists on site to report is a little harder. Today Zapaday together with GRNlive, the UK based Foreign Correspondents Network, launch the global news-reporting network of the future!
Now, our client newsrooms can search Zapaday’s database of future worldwide news and available GNRlive correspondents in that area are matched to the story, listed with their contact details and experience. In a matter of minutes, newsrooms can arrange coverage of upcoming news events, calling upon the local knowledge of those correspondents at the heart of the story.
“Our partnership is simple, yet has the capacity to transform the way newsrooms keep up with the demand to report timely stories from abroad, not to mention saving money and their carbon footprint by not putting teams on planes,” says GRNlive founder and CEO Henry Peirse, “Covering world news is enhanced by talking to correspondents on the ground with a deep understanding of the story.”
The global GRNlive network includes over 900 professional correspondents, photographers, video journalists, fixers and writers all over the world.
“This partnership demonstrates that innovation is often the combination of existing strengths,” says Stefan Hoevenaar, founder and CEO of Zapaday, “News organisations are in a transition for survival and our goal is to support their transition by improving editorial planning while reducing costs. Our partnership with GRNlive adds great value to our news planning service.”
