YouTube has created a new feature called “News Near You” that senses a user’s location and serves up a list of relevant locations, according to the NY Times.

Among the suppliers of News Near You is VidSF, run by three guys who despise the local TV news diet of fires and homicides.

“It really levels the playing field,” said Kieran Farr, a founder of VidSF who covers the city’s culture and uploads his segments to YouTube.
