570 News has a Youtube channel where we post video of many of the stories we’re following on a day-to-day basis.

As Waterloo Region’s only all-news radio station and its news leader, 570 News recognizes the importance of online and social media as an avenue to bring the breaking news to everyone – as it happens.

That includes our Twitter pages – one for @570newsradio, and one for @570traffic, our breaking news alerts which you can sign up for by clicking on the link in the middle of the main page of our website, and now the 570 News Youtube channel.

Not only are we constantly covering the news as it happens – as residents of the community, so are you!  If you have photos or video – we’d love to see them!  If you’ve got amazing footage of breaking news as it happens, send it to us through the link on the main page of www.570news.com and of course if we use it – we’ll give you credit.

The reason we look forward to you sending it to us is – if you don’t…we can’t let everyone else in the Region and around the world see it.

That fact was evidenced when 570 News listener Brian sent us remarkable video of the transport truck that was on fire on the 401 in March.

If Brian had not taken the time to send that video to us – YOU would not have been able to witness it.

We’ve also taken pictures sent to us by listeners like Brent W.J. Mackie and created video montages for you to see things like the damage done by the fire in downtown Kitchener on March 27th.

Of course when 570 News reporters are in the field – they file stories not only for on-air, but also for those people who like to get their news online at our website.

570′s Mark Douglas was on the scene when a pair of good Samaritans saved the life of a teen who drove off the road on March 21st.

570′s Haley Zimak was in Listowel for the emotional funeral of their fallen volunteer firefighters on March 24th.

And when major events happen here at 570 News like the arrival of NDP Leader Jack Layton at the outset of a new federal election campaign on March 29th, you can watch the interview in its entirety on our Youtube channel.  As an example – here’s one of the segments.

570 News covers events that take place in and around Waterloo Region – including those that take place outside the downtown core but are attended by many of you.  A perfect example is the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival, and 570 News was there.

The news is always changing and so is www.570news.com so check in with us three, four, five times a day for the latest updates, and don’t forget to check out the 570 News Youtube channel anytime.
