Vice Media has formed a partnership with The Guardian that will include co-branded programs, collaborations between Vice and Guardian staffers and more.
“This partnership provides a test case for the way forward in multi-platform exploitation of content,” said Vice Media co-founder and CEO Shane Smith, in a statement. “And when that content is the foremost investigative news in the business it becomes even more imperative. Real, fact-based, trusted news has never been more important and this partnership, I am very excited to say, will provide just that.”
As part of the deal, The Guardian’s multimedia news editor Mustafa Khalili will oversee a team of Guardian staffers who will work out of Vice’s London bureau.
