In this article we present a web platform used by media producers to monitor word events, detected by VLX-Stories. The event detector system retrieves multi-regional articles from news sites, aggregates them by topic, and summarizes them by extracting and structuring its most relevant entities in order to answer the journalism W's: who, what, when and where. The dashboard displays online detected events in a semantically linked space which allows navigation among trending news stories on distinct countries, categories and time. Moreover, detected events are linked to costumer contents, helping editorial process by providing real time access to breaking news related to their contents. (Demo paper)
