Lynch Heads Joint Effort On Breaking Business News
The New York Times and TheStreet.com yesterday announced the launch of a joint newsroom designed specifically to expand financial coverage on the companies’ Web sites.
The joint newsroom will focus on breaking business news, personal finance, and stock market coverage. The stories will be co-branded and published on both The New York Times on the Web and TheStreet.com.
The joint newsroom is headed by Jack Lynch, assistant business news editor at the Times, and currently includes six reporters.
TheStreet.com and The New York Times on the Web previously exchanged headlines, a deal put in place after The New York Times Co. invested $15 million in TheStreet.com in February.
