LocalOnlineNews.tv Launches West Hartford New Media Outlet

LocalOnlineNews.tv, the brainchild of Lon Seidman and Anna Sava*, has launched its first outlet in West Hartford. From the About page:

LocalOnlineNews.TV is the next generation of local news. Experienced, professional journalists report on issues and events that impact local communities. LocalOnlineNews.TV goes further than traditional media with the option to view complete, uncut interviews with local officials and newsmakers attached to every story we produce. Find us on every major video hosting site and use our content as you please for non-commercial purposes.

Here is their recent report on the always-contentious West Hartford budget negotiations:

If you go to the link and scroll down, in addition to the story, you will find the complete interviews with the First Selectman and the Schools Superintendent. It’s like the t.v. news, but local, and you control the option to dig deeper into a particular story. This is one of those what-is-the-future-of-journalism projects to keep an eye on – especially with its Connecticut roots and initial rollout.

* Lon Seidman is a Democratic political activist and the former campaign manager for Congressman Joe Courtney and Anna Sava is a professional journalist and a former anchor for WTNH. The editorial direction, for obvious reasons of professional integrity and common sense, is wholly provided by Anna Sava.
