Introducing the Contributor Network

We believe the name Contributor Network better reflects the diversity of our community. From amateur writers and professional journalists, to subject matter experts and video creators, this title represents what we foresee the future looking like.

NewsBreak’s Creator Program launched exactly one year ago. Since then, thousands of passionate storytellers have come aboard to share stories that fuel our company’s mission of helping people live safer, more vibrant, more truly connected lives. We’ve come a long way, but know the best is yet to come! We’re excited to introduce the next evolution of this program: NewsBreak’s Contributor Network.

We believe the name Contributor Network better reflects the diversity of our community. From amateur writers and professional journalists, to subject matter experts and video creators, this title represents what we foresee the future looking like.

In addition to the name change, we are updating our Content Policy and Content Requirements and rolling out a new set of Editorial Standards & Guidelines. The goal of these guidelines is to increase transparency, build credibility with our audience and make our Contributor ecosystem a safer and healthier place for all.

As part of our efforts to increase transparency with our audience, we will also roll out three tiers of Contributor types: Community Voice, Community Voice Pro, and Journalist. These designations will be based on external certifications, level of expertise, and adherence to the NewsBreak policy, guidelines and requirements.

Of course, our teams continue to work hard behind the scenes to add even more features and enhancements to aid the growth and success of our contributors including comment moderation improvements, achievement badges, a new community experience and more.

We are so thankful to all who are on this ride with us and can’t wait for what’s to come! To view stories from our contributors, visit NewsBreak.
