If there are two things audiences love, cute pet photos and celebrating national days would be at the top of the list. It’s only natural that “National Love Your Pet Day” turned out to be one of the largest media submission days here at Burst.

Last week, 70+ local news stations made viewer content the focal point of their National Love Your Pet Day programming. Using the Burst platform to acquire user-generated pet content, these stations quickly managed and curated thousands of photos/videos, and easily integrated them into their existing broadcast and digital workflows. The news stations capitalized on this passion point and drove great engagement with their viewers.
