The Post-Newsweek station and its Web site will promote the United Way’s Neighbors4Neighbors online discussion forum, helping the unemployed in Detroit connect with one another.
Post-Newsweek NBC affiliate WDIV Detroit (DMA 11) and its Web site ClickOnDetroit.com today have formed a partnership with United Way for Southeastern Michigan. Together they are launching Neighbors4Neighbors, a new online forum that helps people give and get advice about the issues that matter when you lose a job.
The Web site — www.N4NMichigan.org — launched on April 14 and offers visitors an opportunity to share timely advice and information about job loss, health care, finances and other topics. WDIV and ClickOnDetroit.com will be the exclusive media partners for Neighbors4Neighbors.
The site will be linked from ClickOnDetroit.com, which averages 1.7 million unique visitors monthly. WDIV’s on-air talent will also be featured in a series of promotional
announcements for Neighbors4 Neighbors.
“Neighbors4Neighbors is a very innovative approach to addressing the issues that matter most to our viewers in this economy,” said Marla Drutz, WDIV vice president-general manager. “WDIV Local 4 and ClickOnDetroit.com are proud to utilize our position as the No. 1 Web site in southeast Michigan as a platform for solutions and support,” she added.
