Will YouNewsTV Play In Peoria?

Hat tip to Bill Dennis for this.

WEEK's parent company, Granite Broadcasting, will be "inviting 'citizen journalists' to produce anything from online news footage to complete reports. The coverage could find its way onto local news broadcasts as well." This according to an article in Broadcasting and Cable.

Specific stations haven't been decided, so we don't know if WEEK will be one of them. I think the value (whether it's here or not) will be mostly for breaking news. Outside of that it feels like something that would be pretty suspect without solid guidelines and enforcement of those guidelines.
