You are an asset to the media

The thing is, no one can be present everywhere. Not even the media. But more often than not, a local is around when something occurs. Through Byrd, media can ask for your assistance. Or you can share your photos and videos and watch them become news stories.

What makes us unique

Make money

Once you have uploaded your photo or video, you don’t need to lift a finger. If it’s picked up, you will be notified and paid.
