CNN.com is calling on its iReporters to form the foundation for its coverage of Comic-Con International, which began Thursday at the San Diego Convention Center and runs through Sunday.
Select iReporters will receive custom-designed Comic-Con Flip video cameras to enhance their coverage, courtesy of Cisco Systems’ Flip Video, and CNN said it will host daily reporter Tweetups at The Cartoon Network Pizzeria at Ciro’s, where producers will assign stories for the day and guide iReporters on how to navigate the confab.
iReport will also issue open assignments on its Web site and via a special Twitter feed, @cnnireportsdcc. And iReport will feature video assignments from celebrities, including the stars of The CW’s Vampire Diaries challenging iReporters to explain the fascination with vampire culture.
The best iReports will be featured on CNN.com’s Comic-Con page, as well as on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight.
