Internet Broadcasting and The Associated Press entered into a content-distribution partnership under which AP member news organizations on the IB network will have easy access to enhanced AP text, photos and video news feeds.
The companies said the AP Online product offers more than 350 stories, 40 video clips and hundreds of related images daily, and IB’s national news team compiles content packages and publishes them to IBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s partner sites.
AP director of broadcast markets for the Americas Dave Gwizdowski said:
AP is pleased to work with Internet Broadcasting to enhance the value of AP content online by offering an innovative, efficient and flexible work-flow solution. It is another creative step in our long-standing relationship with IB and its AP member news sites.
And IB chief operating officer Jeff Kimball added:
We are extremely pleased with the quality and the quantity of the content that we get from AP Online. The content is at the core of the AP Online product, and IB added value by integrating AP Online into our publishing platform, ibPublish. The end result is high-quality and timely information that is critical for media companies that need the best in news and verticals that drive revenue.
