Factiva Announces Addition of Knight Ridder Digital Online Content

Factiva (http://www.factiva.com) and Knight Ridder Digital (http://www.knightridderdigital.com) have announced an agreement allowing Factiva to include online content from 29 Knight Ridder newspapers as part of its global news and business information offering. Through Knight Ridder Digital, full-text daily publications from top media markets around the country, as well as from state capitals and other important regional centers, will now be available on the day of publication to Factiva customers through Dow Jones Interactive and all other Factiva products.

A partial list of publications included in this agreement is as follows: San Jose Mercury News (BayArea.com), Detroit Free Press (Freep.com), The Miami Herald (Miami.com), Fort Worth Star Telegram (DFW.com), The Charlotte Observer (Charlotte.com), The Kansas City Star (KansasCity.com), St. Paul Pioneer Press (TwinCities.com), Philadelphia Daily News (Philly.com), Akron Beacon Journal (Ohio.com), Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (RealColumbus.com), Contra Costa Times (BayArea.com), Duluth News-Tribune (MississippiCoast.com), and The (Biloxi) Sun Herald. These additional publications join an existing content set of nearly 8,000 sources, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Le Monde, Financial Times, and the South China Morning Post.

The new agreement is part of Knight Ridder Digital's Content Services initiative. That initiative grows out of online publishers' needs to create multiple streams of revenue. "We believe we can balance the needs of a destination site and destination network strategy with that of our content syndication strategy, growing both," said Ken Doctor, vice president of content services at Knight Ridder Digital.
