ABC Involving Viewers In ‘Seen & Heard’

ABC News Now is launching a new daily program “based on content submitted by its viewers” later this month, Broadcasting & Cable reports. The show, called Seen & Heard, “will solicit viewer video and questions for ABC News experts and news figures online and string them together into an hour-long 12:30 p.m. program, focusing each show on one issue, such as global warming or social security.”

It’ll air seven days a week. ABC News digital EP Michael Clemente says it’s supposed to be “a big daily electronic town meeting.”

ABC is pairing with portals like Yahoo! to solicit viewer video. “Seen & Heard selections will be offered to ABC affiliates and to the network news programs like World News Tonight and Good Morning America, for incorporation into TV shows that reach a mainstream audience.”
