ABOUT What's The 411 Networks
Based in Brooklyn, New York, What's The 411? Networks is a digital media company redefining entertainment news and lifestyle. Creators of original video content, What's The 411 Networks celebrated its re-launch on October 19, 2011. The company had its beginning in independent television production with a weekly entertainment news program on WNYC-TV. The producers became video streaming pioneers as it integrated the power of the Internet in its operations in 1996. The company was just a little ahead of the marketplace because far too many people were without 56k modems and broadband connections were still many years away. The September 11, 2001, tragedy slowed the flow of venture capital and the company stopped production in 2006. With the advent of YouTube, Vimeo and other video sharing companies, the founder of What's The 411 Networks with urging from former correspondents, made a decision to re-boot the company. What's The 411 Networks re-launched with a new mission, look, and business model.
