Rawporter & GRNlive Form a Partnership
As many of you readers may remember, a few months ago I interviewed Rawporter co-founders Rob Gaige and Kevin Davis. Well, today I have an update on these talented guys. Last week, the North Carolina startup announced that they will be teaming up with the Foreign Correspondents Network, GRNlive, which is an independent news correspondent management agency that specializes in on-the-scene reporting for radio and TV broadcasters. This partnership is a win-win for both companies as they now work together to help media properties in need of on-demand, on-air talent as well as photo and video content.
The new partnership between Rawporter and GRNlive helps solve the problem of media partners who can’t be in the right place at the right time. When Rawporter receives a request for on-air talent, they will send it to GRNlive. In return when GRNlive receives a request for photos and videos, they will send it to Rawporter.
“We’re thrilled to partner with a media innovator like Rawporter, to source photos and videos for our clients, ” said Henry Peirse founder of GRNlive. “They are filling a void, and we’re happy to see such a logical entrance into the market.”
“GRNlive is an established and credible partner with a global presence,” said Rawporter founder Kevin Davis. “We’re really excited to help our clients find on-air talent fast with their help.”
The partnership hopes to prove mutually beneficial as both companies are committed to the cost-effective distribution of breaking news and see the relationship as complementary as well as an exciting, logical evolution in the world of breaking news.
