FluentMedia Partners with Financial Times for Global Content
FluentMedia, a content-licensing agency of Tribune Co., has broadened its supply of international news and commentary with the addition of the Financial Times to its list of information providers. Effective immediately, FluentMedia customers will receive articles from FT as part of their premium daily filtered-news feeds.
FluentMedia licenses editorial content to corporate clients for use on their intranets, extranets, and public marketing sites. The more than 300 custom-filtered full-text articles from FT are drawn from the newspaper's London, U.S., European, and Asian-based editions. As an added value, FluentMedia customers will receive content posted throughout the day on the FT.com Web site, including Web-only features and articles published between editions of the newspaper. This online feed includes more than 100 stories, bringing the daily collection of FT articles to approximately 400.
"We're pleased to be able to offer our clients news and analysis from one of the most respected publications in the world," said John Twohey, general manager of FluentMedia. "This new partnership extends the reach of the Financial Times within corporate America, and it strengthens FluentMedia's already deep coverage of the international marketplace."
