CBS Local Digital Media, which encompasses the websites of CBS O&Os, today announced an agreement with Examiner.com to collaborate on creating lifestyle content for local audiences.
“Over the course of the past 18 months we’ve built a platform that quickly garnered interest from millions of users searching for the best local news, information and entertainment,” said CBS Local Digital Media president Ezra Kucharz. “Taking our vision one step further by working with a stable of contributors with expertise in their field will greatly enhance the audience’s experience.”
Examiner.com is a Denver-based company that relies on a network of 85,000 pro-am contributors (“Examiners”) across the country who provide content about a wide range of topics–usually about what’s trending online.
Stories written by Examiners will start being rolled out to CBS websites next month.
According to the press release, the Examiner content “will focus on ‘Best Of’ guides and ‘Top Spots’ lists covering a range of topics including arts and culture, shopping, food and drink, nightlife and music, as well as travel and outdoors.”
