From a press release to important, it is datelined Cincinnati and Libertyville, Ill. —
One of professional football’s most animated stars and avid Twitter user, Chad Ocho Cinco, has announced the creation of the Ocho Cinco News Network (OCNN) – the nation’s first athlete-operated social media news network, powered by Motorola’s MOTOBLUR technology. Ocho Cinco broke the news regarding the launch of OCNN via Twitter this past weekend.
Known for his headline-making quotes, the Cincinnati wide receiver is teaming up with Motorola and tapping into its innovative MOTOBLUR technology to form the heart of OCNN and fuel its ongoing mission to provide fans with the latest insider information and breaking news from on-and-off the football field.
Whether through his highly-anticipated end-zone dances, or patented catch phrases, including “child pleeez” or “kiss da baby,” Ocho Cinco has become an entertaining lightning rod for both media and fans alike.
“Everyone knows that I’m more than just a football star. I’m all about entertainment and doing things that no one else has ever done before,” said Ocho Cinco. “OCNN is exactly that, a first of its kind, and thanks to Motorola’s MOTOBLUR technology, I’m powered up and ready to take tweeting and social networking to an even higher level.”
Ocho Cinco’s vision includes daily and weekly OCNN reports to be delivered using MOTOBLUR via his Motorola CLIQ on sports, entertainment, lifestyle and a host of other topics. OCNN reports will be delivered with the same animated and flamboyant style that has characterized Ocho Cinco since he entered the league and are certain to draw the attention and discussion of football fans across the country.
