How do you disrupt the way news is gathered and shared? For NewsByMe, the solution was to bring “citizen journalism” into the palm of your hand. Its founder, Pason Gaddis (also founded Florida Weekly), walked in with an amazing vision that felt game-changing from the first time we heard it: “Location-based news”.
Since its beta release, the response has been overwhelming. New users are signing up every hour looking to be able to report, share, and follow the news that’s happening all around them.
