Ebyline, an online platform built to connect publishers with freelance journalists, unveiled the Ebyline News Desk. The News Desk turns the traditional wire service model on its head, producing custom feeds of original, reported content for publishers that want quality journalism that scales with demand. The new model links experienced content producers within a geography or topic to editors and publishers with specific content needs.
For example, with Ebyline News Desk a publisher can order four stories per month on their local sports team, the Hollywood entertainment beat, or developments in the energy sector, have upfront editorial input, and make changes to the coverage as they go.
With 285 bureaus representing over 2,200 professionals, all of Ebyline's contributors are vetted by editorial staff and include veteran newspaper journalists whose work has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and various other top-tier news outlets. Photos, videos, graphics and editing round out the service's newsroom offerings.
