The Nation’s First and Only Athlete-Run Social News Network Returns For Another Season Of News Coverage With All-Pro News Team
LIBERTYVILLE, IL – August 3, 2010 – Chad Ochocinco and Motorola today announced that the OchoCinco News Network (OCNN), “America’s First Athlete-Driven News Network”, will return for another season to bring fans all across the country breaking news via social networks. To ensure OCNN delivers content bigger and better than ever this season, Ochocinco is expanding his media empire at OCNN by bringing in Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis and Buccaneers’ defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.
Launched in 2009, OCNN’s coverage of the NFL, Super Bowl and NFL Draft helped the network not only become one of the hottest topics in the League, but also the social media realm, resulting in a current online following of over one-million.
“Both Darrelle and Gerald are perfect fits for my news team,” said Ochocinco. “Revis is the best cover man in the league providing coverage like only he can and McCoy will prove to everyone that he not only breaks up the plans of the best offenses, but can also break news for OCNN.”
In addition to tweets about sports, entertainment, lifestyle, and politics, this year fans can expect an increase in original video content from the OCNN team members.
Throughout the season, the OCNN team will be provided with early access to the latest and greatest Motorola devices starting with the wildly popular DROID X, which will allow these stars to break news across multiple platforms. With an HD camcorder and integrated social media networks, these athletes can go anywhere and swiftly issue high quality reports. In addition, the DROID X will allow photo sharing on numerous online mediums which will give fans an inside perspective to wherever these players go.
Fans can expect the OCNN team to deliver inside information on the hottest topics in the NFL and the social media sphere, including the League’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign in October and the highly anticipated Ochocinco/Revis matchup on Thanksgiving Day.
With an All-Pro team in place, OCNN is guaranteed to exceed fans’ expectations. Coming from all angles of the field, you can expect this three-man team to release insider information and breaking news both on and off the field. With last year’s successful launch to build upon, OCNN has a platform to take the social media world by storm.
“OCNN gave me the opportunity to prove myself by covering the 2010 NFL Draft,” said Revis. “My goal for this season is to be the best cover man in the NFL both on and off the field.”
“I’ll be working very hard to make an impact as a rookie on the field,” said McCoy.” But I will also strive to impress OCNN editor-in-chief Chad Ochocinco with my off the field reports and mastery of the DROID X.”
The OCNN news team will be delivering Twitter and Facebook special reports and exclusive videos providing a unique perspective on all the hottest news. In addition, OCNN will be capturing exclusive interviews on current events with athletes, celebrities and fans throughout the season.
