Your Week: Reddit-Powered Television News

Reddit, a social new service site, today announced about it's partnership with PBS (public broadcasting here in the USA) about YourWeek.

YourWeek is a weekly television news program powered by users. Material for the show will come from hot stories on the reddit front page every week. Meta discussions about that content and the show itself will all take place at yourweek.reddit. The pilot (and hopefully all the future shows) will be available online.

Whereas traditional television new stories end once the show airs, YourWeek -- like reddit -- will just be the beginning. Throughout the week you'll be able to share your thoughts on yourweek.reddit and followup with content you think was missed or corrections that should be made.

About YourWeek

YOUR WEEK is the beta version of a planned interactive public television and internet show from WETA Washington, D.C., and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It's hosted by Michelle Cottle and Rich Lowry and powered by Reddit. YOUR WEEK covers politics, arts, international, science, tech, social, sports, and pop culture. The Web feeds the show, the show feeds the Web, and anyone who wishes can get involved at any time to view, vote, rate, tag, comment, contribute, and learn.
