New York Times after Reuters business news too?

December 11th, 2007Posted by in Online Journalism

Times Online is reporting that the NY Times is in talks about taking business news from Reuters in a deal similar to that which stablemate International Herald Tribune announced yesterday.

Times Online stated:

“The tie-ups are designed to augment both titles’ business coverage, in an attempt to fend off the competitive threat from The Wall Street Journal , which is due to be acquired by News Corporation, the parent company of The Times, this week.”

And later:

“Mr Oreskes [Mike Oreskes, editor-in-chief of the IHT],confirmed that there were “ongoing discussions” about a separate agreement to supply business news to The New York Times.”

Hope redundancies aren’t in the offing as a result…
