The Breaking News Network was awarded Most Innovative Media 2009 by Inman News last Friday.

Everybody has been asking us - why is the Breaking News Network innovative?

  1. Breaking News sites like Breaking San Francisco News aggregate the best Twitter feeds in a city. They filter the Twitter experience for the local consumer so they're not seeing the noise. These sites are powerful viral marketing vehicles - Twitter feeds @BreakingSFNews, @BreakingLANews and @BreakingNYCNews all have grown organically to over 2,200-2,500 followers in less than 3 months
  2. The Breaking News Network's grass roots application design makes it a unique media model. We give the template away to media/publishing companies and real estate brokerages and agents, who then build a Breaking News site in 3-5 hours. And they OWN the sites; it's on the Wordpress platform so it's easily accessible to non-programmers and customizable to the market.  Once up, that real estate brokerage/agent or media company provides a community service and instantly becomes the hub of their Twitter community in their city.
  3. In three months, the Breaking News Network already covers over 100 cities. As the Breaking News Network expands to cover every city in America (as well as overseas), the network begins to look like the Craigslist for Twitter feeds. We plan to overlay new business models across this network.

We're continuing to develop Breaking News sites and offer the opportunity to Active Rain members for your city. We're allocating only one per city, so if you're interested, please contact me on Active Rain. We select those who understand the power of virally connecting to their community for developing their business.

Congratulations Pat! I knew when I first met you that you ARE a stAR!! Although I'm not at the head of the class, I've enjoyed being in the Friday class since the beginning. It's just amazing what you and Kevin have sculpted out of the social media clay...a cyber-genesis...a spark of genius...you have my applause---and gratitude for sharing your gifts.  Well done!

Pat - Congrats !  Another great milestone and awesome success with Breaking News !  I have seen these Twitter accounts and have been very impressed.  How do you go through all those news stories ?  Would be interested in doing something in Philadelphia but not sure where to begin.

Pat:  Is the Lake Norman NC area still available?  We are in the greater Charlotte area but my main towns are Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Troutman, Sherrills Ford.  If I have to narrow it down:  Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville would be awesome.  I need to learn more too!  Let me know!
