BusinessDay signs deal to publish Reuters content

BusinessDay, Nigeria’s leading business and financial daily newspaper has entered into a content syndication agreement with Reuters, the global news agency with strong focus on business, finance and global markets.

The content syndication pact grants the newspaper real-time access to Reuters’ photo and text content, allowing BusinessDay to serve its readers globally acclaimed content every day.

Frank Aigbogun, publisher of BusinessDay signed for the newspaper while Keith Nichols, Reuters managing director for Africa signed for the agency.

BusinessDay already has similar content syndication agreements with The Financial Times, The Economist, as well as The Harvard Business Review (HBR).

According to a statement by the newspaper, “this partnership with Reuters further demonstrates the commitment of BusinessDay to continue to make the required investment in broadening our content offerings for the benefit of our readers and advertisers.”

The statement quoted Aigbogun as saying, “we are all very delighted at BusinessDay to be able to add content from the highly respected agency like Reuters to what we serve our readers daily. These partnerships with Reuters, FT, Economist and HBR ensure that readers of BusinessDay get the same globally acclaimed content which their peers around the world are used to.

“Already as it is, no other newspaper invests as much as does BusinessDay in aggregating world class content for distribution to its readers.”

The new Reuters section will kick off inside BusinessDay from Monday May 27, 2013 and will be available to readers everyday.
