NBC Philadelphia station reports the news on Foursquare

Lost Remote

The local NBC station in Philadelphia has started reporting news on location-based social network Foursquare. Initially, NBC 10 will pick one lead story a day and have a reporter check in on Foursquare from relevant locations and leave text and photo news updates. Later, this will extend to multiple stories and individual Foursquare accounts for each reporter. “Local news is truly driven by location and the act of checking-in further connects our audience to the news we deliver each day,” Chris Blackman, the station's vice president of news, told Lost Remote. || Earlier: Wall Street Journal launches Foursquare partnership
