IEBB Media announces the launch of the IEBB Urban Newswire. 24-7-365...Your news...Your way...One stop.

#1 Internet source for Urban News and Information! IEBB Media

    /24-7PressRelease/ - Centralia, IL, June 14, 2005 - "I was tired of not finding all our news in one spot," explains IEBB Media President, Atty. A. Renee' West. "Everyday I received at least 10 to 15 news emails. I read 5 to 10 websites, and I subscribed to an RSS news feeder. I felt informed about what's happening in and with the Black community." But reading all of this information, from so many sources, required a major time commitment. Saying that enough was enough, West decided to take matters into her own hands.

The IEBB Newswire pulls and sorts stories from hundreds of news sources daily to provide readers with a list of attributed headlines and links to the full story. Additional stories that are only available in hard copy are conveniently summarized. A navigation bar and keyword search capability allows readers to quickly find the desired headlines, while a 60-day archive provides readers with a valuable reference resource. Headlines are also available in RSS streams. "Right now we average over 100 headlines daily, with an additional 50-75 headlines on the weekends," Atty. West adds. "For me, one of the best parts of the newswire is we drive traffic to sites that our community may not visit on a regular basis, which in turn introduces them to voices they may not have a familiarity."

Unique features of the newswire include a category called 'Racial Disparities" with stories on hate crimes and egregious racial disparities, an animated 'news anchor,' and triweekly 'Featured Topics.' Headlines which focus on 'Racial Disparities' are not to arouse anger or more negativity, but allow readers to consider and hopefully, enact, positive ways to reduce the occurrence of these situations. In addition to reader comments, sidebars will also be used to inform and educate. As an added bonus, every Friday, the 'Weekly News Quiz' gives readers a fun way to test their knowledge of the week's current events.

IEBB Media launched in February 2004 with the introduction of BlackBerrySpeak Urban News Magazine. Published weekly, the magazine includes short concise articles on a wide spectrum of topics. "Our news stories are unique in that they often present the left, right, and centrist viewpoints, within the same article," continued Atty. West.

"IEBB Media is the best Internet source for urban news and information. It's a black thing, and we're proud of that," concluded Atty. West.
