The Uptake

The UpTake is a citizen-fueled, online video news gathering organization. Established July 2007.
The UpTake is an alternative to mainstream media, but mostly we're a training resource for your average or not-so-average Joe & Jane. We want to teach you to BE THE MEDIA. Watch our front page daily for news, livestreams of local and national events, and our radio show/webcast daily at 5 PM. We believe in truth, transparency, kindness and the American Way (whatever that is these days). Come watch us. Better yet: join us!
