Wikipages has partnered with MetroBoxTV to create a new web tv show. Featuring businesses throughout the city, this show combines the local knowledge of Wikipages with the digital video qualities of MetroBoxTV. This show will be hosted by Wikipages co-founder and Community Manager Tracey Donvito. She plans to use her keen knowledge of this city to highlight businesses throughout NYC.
Wikipages was first introduced to MetroBoxTV last year, when founders Tracey Donvito and Benjamin Horst were interviewed for the program Blogspot. During the interview, they discussed their respective blogs: nyc.metblogs.com and solidoffice.com. They also explored several businesses in their local neighborhood of Astoria. After the successful airing of this interview, these two complimentary websites began plans for future collaboration. With the content that Wikipages provides and the video capabilities of MetroBoxTV, the project of this Web TV show was born.
Founder Benjamin Horst says, “This is an exciting project because it sits at the intersection of two of the major current web trends: video content, and intensely local content. Wikipages and MetroBoxTV are both innovative online communities, so it will be fun and interesting to see the results of their collaborative project.“
Entitled FiDi Revealed, the first features in the show focus on the Financial District, highlighting businesses on Stone Street and the surrounding areas. This show show is now live online, located here: MetroBoxTV.com
