Featured Broadcaster of the Week: StuffWeLike

Posted on by

David Rodriguez had conquered the digital world with StuffWeLike long before he started with Ustream. He’s grown with us over the last two years and we’re excited for the years to come.

“I’ve used many video platforms and Ustream is the one that offers the best audience engagement,” remarked Rodriguez. “My Ustream channel has a very dedicated audience, many of whom I’ve even chatted with outside of streams — becoming Facebook friends or talking over the phone. Viewers return stream after stream, chat in the chatroom, and help direct what happens next in the stream. It’s a very fluid system, which makes it far more entertaining to both produce content and consume it.” Continue reading

3rd UPDATE: Ustream Election Day Central

Posted on by

We’re all about politics on Nov. 6. All day on Election Day, the world will tune into Ustream for the most comprehensive coverage online — or anywhere for that matter. Throughout the year, we’ve seen live news events like the Mars Rover landing and the presidential debates score big on Ustream. Election Day is shaping up to be another major draw as viewers increasingly turn to the Internet for live, interactive experiences.

Ustream has teamed up with some of the country’s leading news organizations to bring you real-time results and analysis, on-the-ground reports and exclusive behind-the-scenes access inside newsrooms. We’ve got an eclectic array of perspectives and commentary, as well as live monitoring of polling stations from Video the Vote volunteers in key battleground states. With so many choices, you can truly build your own news experience.

We’ll be adding to the schedule as Election Day nears, but here’s the lineup as of Monday morning:

  • Six streams from PBS NewsHour, including in-studio interviews with political insiders, historical campaign footage, a live newsroom cam, a closed captioned stream and two hatcams dispatched to Obama and Romney headquarters in Washington, D.C.
  • Seven hours of live coverage from CBS News with Scott Pelley, Bob Schieffer, Norah O’Donnell, John Dickerson and correspondents in battleground states.
  • Hours of coverage from WSJ Live starting at 8 p.m. EST. Guests include Rudy Giuliani, Gov. Bill Richardson, Rep. Dennis Kucinich and Karl Rove.
  • Live election monitoring from Video the Vote volunteers across the country.
  • WGBH with special election night episode of daily news magazine show ‘Greater Boston’ 
  • UPI Live with all-day coverage featuring panel discussions, reports from Obama campaign headquarters in Washington, D.C. and the White House.
  • Freedom Foundation with live results and analysis of national and Washington state races.
  • And another appearance by our good friends at “Live Drinking” with Election Night festivities.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter @UstreamNews. See you on Tuesday!

Mill Mountain Zoo Announces Birth of a Baby Red Panda!

12pm PT/3pm ET

The Zoo wants the public to be aware that mother pandas are protective and secretive about their young. Frequently mothers build multiple nest sites and transfer the cubs from one site to another. However, the cubs remain in the dens, out of sight, (except during the transfers), until they are between 2 and 3 months old. The Zoo looks forward to sharing this new treasure with visitors as soon as the mother feels comfortable sharing the baby with the public. [clear here]

YES Movie Premiere on BIZ TV

6pm PT/9pm ET

The great myth that if you grow up, go to school and get your degree, find a job where you work for an employer – many times unrecognized as an individual – but work hard nonetheless, you can climb the ladder to the top. After you put in thirty-plus years of hard work you can one day possibly own a home, have a mediocre savings, and retire. The truth is that many of the individuals who follow down this so called path to success find themselves forced to come out of retirement and rejoin the workforce a few years later often in a minimum wage job and having less freedom. Looking for a way to dodge this situation? If the answer is YES, you found the right place! [clear here]
