More About UWIRE (And the WORD)

UWIRE Services

Free Content: We have recently re-launched our website, incorporating our old database into the new Once you become an affiliate, you will be able to pull stories from UWIRE and reuse in your own paper so long as the stories are correctly attributed.

Professional Networking: UWIRE’s new site features a Facebook-style networking opportunity. Instead of connecting with friends, individuals can connect with other young aspiring media professionals. You can post your resume, stories, videos and photos. It’s a perfect place to keep your portfolio at easy access for internship and professional interviews. To take advantage of this, the individual does not need to be a UWIRE member through their school paper. We encourage any student interested in turning their journalism/media interest into a career to make a profile. In the future we will also be featuring online job fairs.

Daily Newsletters: We also alert editors to the day’s top news, sports, opinions and arts coverage through our newsletters. Simply include the addresses you want these sent to in Exhibit A of the Member Agreement and we’ll get them signed up.

Exposure: Stories picked up by UWIRE are syndicated to professional media outlets and could be found on sites such as The New York Times, Yahoo!, CSTV, LexisNexis and others. This is great exposure both for your writers as well as your paper and web site.

Press Release Service: This is the way we make most of our money, and it keeps UWIRE a free service for college papers. Companies use UWIRE to issue press releases relevant to the college market. Recent releases have included information from Sallie Mae, Sony, STA Travel, Comedy Central, US News and World Report, The Princeton Review, Firefox, Playboy, HBO and Yahoo!

We require that all members subscribe at least one e-mail address to this list — it helps us defer the cost of putting out the wire each day.
