LIN Television is partnering with YouTube to launch dedicated YouTube channels for its 31 stations. The sites will feature a mix of news content from the station and user-generated video.
One LIN manager with knowledge of the project said the channels should be in place by the end of the year, although a LIN spokesperson would not confirm that.
“We’re still going through the process,” said the spokesperson. “We do have a relationship with YouTube, and we hope to launch something soon.”
The project is similar to what Hearst-Argyle launched this past summer. Five stations, including WCVB Boston and WBAL Baltimore, debuted the channels in June. A total of 16 Hearst-Argyle stations now feature YouTube channels.
