The Wall Street Journal has launched a mobile news video site called WorldStream. The site features video footage that is shot on smartphones by reporters from all of the Dow Jones’ brands. WorldStream is overseen by WSJ editorial video director Shawn Bender and real-time video deputy Mark Scheffler.
Each video is posted within minutes after a reporter submits it to an editor, making the site an almost live feed for news.
“Our video viewership has more than doubled in the past six months to over 20 million streams, and the creation of this video blog is a milestone in the expansion of video at the Journal,” said Alan Murray, deputy managing editor and executive editor of WSJ.com.
