Reuters aims to ‘cut through the clutter’ with new specialised news products

Reuters announced via a press release yesterday that it is launching a suite of news products aimed at professionals in the legal, tax and accounting and science markets, which the international news agency claims will “cut through the clutter” in online news.

Combining the world-class journalism of Reuters with the analysis and rich content available through products like Westlaw and Checkpoint, these offerings bring to customers unmatched insight into the topics shaping their profession, and the context to make the right decisions for their business.

According to the release, Stephen Adler, editor-in-chief of Reuters News, is to lead the “build-out of news teams” to cover topics such as litigation, tax policy and intellectual property law.

Also in Reuters news, this week paidContent reports that the agency is to distribute celebrity news video from Hollywood.TV as part of a new deal.

Reuters will distribute Hollywood.TV’s celebrity news footage as a complement to its existing mix of entertainment coverage. The deal further enhances the Reuters America’s recently launched “unified content platform”.
