CHARLOTTE, NC - Fox 46 WJZY has partnered with "Fresco," an iPhone app that lets you, our viewers be a part of the news-gathering process.
If you love to shoot video and take photos, this is for you!
If you see news you can shoot it and let Fox 46 know, or accept an assignment near you and upload your footage.
Fox 46 will send out the assignment, and you get a notification. If you're an area where news is happening, you'll have an opportunity to take out your phone and shoot it.
Once you've got the footage and photos you need, you upload it to your Fresco News App.
Our assignment editors will review all of the uploaded material, and pick what we want or need.
The best part? You will get paid if we use your footage or photo.
Download the fresco news app, respond to an assignment, shoot, upload, and get paid.
Just like that, you've become an important part of our Fox 46 News Team, and you can see how, as you watch your news gathering on our air, and on-line.
Download the app here and sign up.
An app will be available soon for Android users.
