Internet Broadcasting turns former WCCO site back on

Minneapolis Bridge CollapseThere’s an interesting story happening at Internet Broadcasting‘s headquarters in Minneapolis. I’m based here, so I’m seeing it all happen. The company used to manage Channel4000.com for WCCO-TV here in Minneapolis. That relationship ended and WCCO changed their URL to wcco.com. That left Channel4000 pretty much dead. It became an automated weather site for the last few years. But, when you have a company packed with journalists, and a story happening in our own city, the site was turned back on and packed with Minneapolis Bridge Collapse content. There are a number of Web journalists on the scene last night and today, and they are producing content that is being shared with the other IB stations around the country, and the new partnership with CNN.

Update: CNN.com is now linking to the Channel4000.com coverage of the disaster.
