Video News Editor

About NewsBeat Social

NewsBeat Social (“NBS”) plans to fill a deficiency in the global market for a modern, video-first, facts-only news service. Currently the Company gathers, composes and distributes about 60 video news reports a day with one shift Monday through Friday.

NBS is a global news agency that generates fact-based reports from newsworthy events around the world and in the future plans to license its continuously updated library to news publishers, news aggregators and web portals worldwide. Recent fake news scandals have created an unprecedented opportunity for our small news agency to scale. NBS covers the four basic elements of any newsworthy event: who, what, when and where.  Each news event is transformed into a self-contained news report available in three formats: Anchored Video, Text and an Audio File. Our news reports do not contain any analysis or opinion, nor do they contain native or sponsored content and content marketing masquerading as news or the latest scandal, fake news.
