Yahoo to launch singing news channel

Web 2.0, Websites

singing.gifYahoo has revealed plans for a online video news channel where stories will be sung, rather than spoken.

The channel will be called ‘Odd News Underground’, and the headlines will be crooned by a mystery presenter who’s an experienced reporter AND musician. Stories will focus on weird and offbeat stuff, rather than serious issues, to avoid accusations of flippancy.

Do people want their news in a wacky stylee? Naked News already has a bunch of anchors (steady at the back there) reading headlines in the buff, while many Brits have fond memories of cable channel Live TV’s News Bunny. Odd News Underground is due to launch by summer, so stay tuned. Literally.
