Full Time / Mountain View, CA
Fall of last year, former CNN/MSNBC anchor Carlos Watson and his team will launch OZY, a new kind of daily news and information site that brings an edgy, educated generation up to speed on what happened over the past 24 hours and vaults them ahead by previewing 5-10 new people, places, ideas, and trends. Almost every major news outlet today covers the same “it happened yesterday” stories. Instead, OZY readers will be treated to truly forward-looking and global content. Designed for consumption across mobile devices, tablets and laptops, OZY’s bite-sized articles will be smart, punchy, and original. OZY readers want to know what's new and different not just in the US but around the globe, so their editorial team will be global. In addition to great substance, OZY will stand for great style, including sleek, modern, colorful site design; compelling "make you stop and stare" pictures; and creative, well-produced video. OZY’s tagline is "See More + Be More". OZY wants to help you both see more of this truly vibrant world and realize how much is possible — and indeed already happening. OZY wants to inform their readers, but also to inspire them to be more, and to make their lives — and this world — a bolder, better place.
