BBC Pilots User-Generated News On BBC News 24

BBC News 24 is launching the first all user-generated news programme featuring material sent in by the public.
Your News, which began as a pilot recently will be the first all user-generated news programme – featuring the stories, features and video proving most popular with viewers on TV and the web.
Kevin Bakhurst, Controller of BBC News 24, said: "Your News will make use of the huge range of material being sent in to the BBC by the public, some of which has already provided real newsgathering value.
"Your News will reflect the stories catching our audience's eye and talk to them directly about the issues they feel really matter."
The new programme draws on the wealth of user-generated content sent into the BBC every day by viewers and readers of the BBC News website.
The website receives around 10,000 emails a day with story suggestions, comments and pictures from the public.
Your News, presented by Richard Bilton and reporter Laura Jones, will run weekly features with a wide range of audience driven content.
These include: Your Story – weekly news report unique to Your News covering an issue raised by a member of the public; Your Questions – Your News reporter Laura Jones sets out to investigate answers to the questions sent in to the BBC by the public on issues, local or national, that concern them; Your Pictures – images sent into the BBC from the public with their view of the world; Your Top Stories – that week's top stories on the BBC News website and elsewhere.
All material will be credited on-air to the member of the public who sent it in.
The Your News pilot broadcasts are scheduled to run throughout December.
