It’s hard not to admire the trajectory of Om Malik as he cuts a broad swath across the blogosphere. First with GigaOm, then Web Worker Daily and NewTeeVee, he has been recruiting quality journalists to do what journalists do best – report the news.
Today, NewTeeVeeStation launches at Midnight eastern time. A spinoff of the NewTeeVee video news site, it address online video as a legitimate entertainment format. You can read the full details in Om’s post. Here’s the meat of it though.
NTV Station features editorial reviews of online videos written by a team lead by Liz Shannon Miller, who comes to us from Variety and the Daily Reel. We eliminate the static and bring to you videos that are actually good — but also the stuff that’s so bad it has everyone talking. We’ve also developed a database of cast, crew, and other details to map out the expanding web video universe. We encourage our readers to become part of the editorial process by adding their own reviews, comments and ratings. You’re also welcome to get lost in our eight channels of the most memorable comedy, commercials, drama, music, news & talk, personalities, reality, and zeitgeist picks.
Think YouTube meets Siskel and Roper. It’s going in my RSS feed for sure – just the thing for the media center PC I’ve been building over the last few weeks.
