Nbc News To Debut African-american-oriented Website
NBC News is launching a website devoted to stories affecting the African-American community, NBC News Senior Vice President Adam Jones announced Wednesday. The website, dubbed TheGrio.com, is being mounted in partnership with Three Part Media LLC, founded by David Wilson, whose documentary, Meeting David Wilson , tracking his family's history from slavery to the present, was featured on MSNBC last year. "This collaboration led to the idea of leveraging NBC News resources and David's editorial talents to create a daily news website that would target the interests and concerns of African American consumers," said Jones. Wilson said that the website plans to provide video reports that appeal to African-Americans "but are underrepresented in existing national news outlets."
