PBS NewsHour and OZY Media today announced a content and social partnership. Say what?
The nearly 40-year-old NewsHour, co-anchored for the past year by Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill, is teaming up with the digital news mag OZY Media, launched in the fall of 2013, to promote each others content online, to also include OZY co-founder Carlos Watson joining Ifill on broadcast to discuss internet trends and highlights.
“PBS NewsHour sets the bar for quality reporting and Gwen has reached the pinnacle of respect in the world of journalism,” Watson said in an announcement. “In just over a year, we just reached 7 million unique visitors last month and are seen and heard by millions more through our partners. As we continue to grow, we’re thrilled to be working closely with PBS NewsHour and sharing a commitment to give our audiences a fun and fresh way to learn about what’s new and what’s next.”
