DENVER, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Examiner.com has announced a partnership with Cell Journalist, expanding its publishing availability for its 70,000 contributors across North America to post articles to their Examiner.com page directly from their mobile phone.

"This exciting partnership allows another way for our Examiners to provide meaningful and relevant information to the communities in which they live," said Rick Blair, CEO of Examiner.com. "It not only adds a further level of convenience for the Examiner, but a mechanism to relay breaking information, whether it's a news event or an exciting sale at a local store, from wherever the Examiner may be."

Using a unique email identification address, Examiners are now able to publish articles, photos and videos from anywhere they have access to their email client via their mobile phone.

"It's a pretty great tool," said John Carson, the Charlotte Smartphones Examiner. "I got a breaking tip while I was at the dentist not too long ago, and I was able to write, edit and publish to my page right there from the waiting room without having to get in front of my computer."

Cell Journalist works with more than 130 local media outlets and is the leading application of its kind for news organizations seeking images and videos of breaking news, weather and community events from the ground. 

We are excited to be working with the contributors across the country to provide a fast and easy way to share the local news and community events with the Examiner.com audience," said Parker Polidor, CEO of Cell Journalist. "The integration of Cell Journalist and Examiner.com is a natural fit."

Examiner.com increased to the 72nd largest domain in the US in February according to comScore, and is coming off one of its most successful month to date, measuring 25.8 million unique visitors according to Omniture's direct measurement.
