Another stone thrown into our media pond. OhMyNews is coming to a screen near your desktop…
Oh Yeon Ho, the pioneering South Korean journalist and owner of the world’s largest ‘citizen journalist’ media website, plans to launch his website OhmyNews.com in Europe.
The site, which famously swung the outcome of the 2002 South Korean presidential election, publishes content written by almost 50,000 members of public and boasts up to 600,000 daily readers.
Mr Ho said: “I hope I can keep introducing our model to other countries including Europe, North America and hopefully North Korea in the future. Why not?
“Actually, we are in talks with a European partner to launch an OhmyNews site in Europe.”
