WallStrip

A financial news video blog hosted by perky actress Lindsay Campbell, Wallstrip went strong for 8 months or so before being acquired by media giant CBS. Taking a non-traditional approach to the news, Campbell tells stories and inserts humor whenever possible. In ways similar ways to John Stewart’s Daily Show, Wallstrip appeals to an audience of knowledgeable viewers who would like to be entertained. Competitors include other video blogs such as RocketBoom, WebbAlert and TeXtra.
