The Politico has announced that it will share print and online content with USA Today and USAToday.com.
Under the agreement, USA Today’s site will prominently feature Poitico articles and columns about the presidential campaign — as well as coverage of Congress and special interests — on its newly redesigned politics page. Selected Politico content will also be included in the print edition of USA Today, which has the highest circulation of any paper in the U.S. USAToday.com political coverage will also appear on Politico.com.
“It has always been our goal to grow The Politico audience by introducing our coverage and website to readers around the world,” said Robert Allbritton, CEO of Politico’s parent company, Allbritton Communications, in a written statement. “This is the perfect marriage: our comprehensive coverage of politics with USAToday.com?s cutting edge, widely read web platform.”
The Politico has signed similar content-sharing deals with four other newspapers (all of which are the largest papers in states hosting first-in-the-nation presidential primaries and caucuses): The Des Moines Register, The New Hampshire Union Leader, The State of Columbia (S.C.) and Las Vegas Sun. Some Politico content is also featured in the New York Observer.
