African video news provider A24 Media is expanding: according to a recent press release the online news agency has launched an improved website, made a foray into the mobile arena and is also planning to provide relevant in-flight content to airlines across the world.
The developments follows A24’s recent partnership with Al Jazeera.
“We have worked very hard to find avenues through which we can offer value-added service to our growing customer base,” says chairman and founder Salim Amin, in the release.
Readers can now catch up on the latest stories through the new version of the site and access to rich video content and images from a large photo archive.
“In addition to our growth strategy, we are also embracing and pushing the concept of citizen journalism to harvest news and other content at all levels of society. We have said from the very beginning that we want to be Africa’s voice and that voice comes from the grassroots,” Amin said.
A24 launched in 2008 as an online, all-African news agency.
