LAist Interview: The Daily Reel's Alexandra Delyle

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

A couple weeks back we interviewed Alex Delyle, managing editor of the West Hollywood-based startup The Daily Reel at the Economics of Social Media conference.

"[The Daily Reel] covers online video the way Variety covers Hollywood and the entertainment business," explained Delyle. We also got some tips on making a hit viral video (hint: forget the felines) and that, if you've got what it takes to be the next big Ze Frank or Lonelygirl15, The Daily Reel just might help take you all the way, baby.
