You can now be part of the FOX 5 News team, thanks to an iPhone app called Fresco News. And if we use the pictures or video you send us through the app, you'll get paid!
Here's how it works: simply download the Fresco News app onto your iOS device. When we need help covering a story that's happening near you, our Assignment Desk will alert you through the app. Upload the video or pictures you shoot, and if they end up in our story, you'll make money. Plus, we'll give you credit for the material on the air.
You can also use the Fresco News app to send us pictures or video of breaking news if you see it happen.
The CEO of Fresco News, John Meyer, joined Good Day Atlanta to talk more about the app and how it helps us cover the news. Play the video to hear more about it.
The Fresco app will soon be available on Android phones as well.
