CBSNews.com to Make Latest Video and Text Programming Available on AOL News
November 09, 2005, AOL and CBS Digital Media have entered into an agreement to offer up-to-the minute broadband video and text news programming from CBSNews.com to the AOL News channel. Under the agreement, CBSNews.com will offer AOL everything from breaking news from around the world to the quirky and the offbeat. The content will be integrated throughout AOL News, including on the News main page, and will include links back to CBSNews.com for additional stories.
The news programming, also available at the new aol.com® web site, builds on AOL’s effort to provide the most comprehensive and engaging news experience on the Web. AOL® News combines news from the nation’s most trusted news sources with polls, blogs, and multimedia features offering real-time dialogue, and reaches a monthly audience of more than 21 million.
“Working with CBS News demonstrates our dedication to offering a robust online news experience to consumers,” said Lewis D’Vorkin, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief, AOL News and Sports. “By adding news content and video programming from CBS News, we will continue to make our AOL News offering one of the most compelling and interactive experiences on the Web.”
This agreement is consistent with CBS Digital Media’s longstanding commitment to provide free broadband video to consumers and its recently announced plans to build a broadband on-demand news network. As one of CBSNews.com’s distribution partners, AOL will benefit from its recently expanded editorial operation and integration with the 24 hour global newsgathering capabilities of CBS News.
“Joining forces with AOL confirms CBSNews.com’s commitment to provide high-quality, free broadband video to the online audience,” said Betsy Lake Morgan, Senior Vice President, CBS Digital Media and General Manager, CBSNews.com. “This partnership also provides AOL users with the most current news and analysis from the award-winning correspondents of CBS News.”
