      NECN will air viewers' videos, post them on Web

      New England Cable News viewers will get their own shot at becoming broadcast journalists on July 15, when the news network debuts ''Video New England," a website feature that allows viewers to upload digital video that might then be posted on the website or broadcast on the network.

      ''It's taking blogging to the next step," said Steven Safran, director of digital media for NECN.

      The video clips that viewers send will be screened by NECN editors, who will determine which ones are suitable to be posted on the website or broadcast on the network.

      Video New England joins a number of other ''citizen journalism" projects, which allow viewers to contribute content, already in development nationwide.
