Before Yahoo! and Associated Content officially joined forces, our companies collaborated on a local news project that enabled Associated Content Contributors from select cities across the U.S. to create original articles for Yahoo! News.
Veteran newspaper reporter and People's Media Award-winning Contributor Michael Thompson was among those who participated in this special project. For Michael, it was a thrilling opportunity to get back on the local beat, see his byline on the Web's most popular news portal and hone his writing skills through direct contact with Associated Content's editors.

In the near future, scores of additional Associated Content Contributors will have the same opportunity. Get ready!
