Gleaner MyReport

The Gleaner recently made another leap in interactive media in Jamaica with the launch of the user-generated Internet portal, myReport.

The site, available at www.jamaica-gleaner.com/myReport, allows users to upload text, photo and video content simply after logging on and signing up.

Once the content is approved by our social media moderators, it goes live on the worldwide web.

"This is an exciting addition to our online offerings," said Damion Mitchell, Editor - Radio & Online.
