'Amarillo Globe-News,' TV Station Launch Extensive News Cooperation

By: E&P Staff The Amarillo (Texas) Globe-News and KFDA NewsChannel 10 on Monday launched an extensive content-sharing partnership that goes far beyond the normal sneak peeks at "tomorrow's headlines" and featuring the TV meteorologist on the weather page.

Morris Publishing LLC-owned Globe-News will provide obituaries and an RSS feed of headlines for the KFDA Web site, in addition to sharing its Spotted technology that allows users to upload and share photographs online.

The Globe-News' Web site will include KFDA video coverage of high school football games for the newspaper's high school football site, www.pigskinreview.com.

The partnership will include the traditional weather sharing, as well: KFDA, a CBS affiliate, will provide the newspaper's daily weather information -- which beginning Monday will be printed in color.

"We are, to a certain extent, competitors, but we bring different strengths to the table," Publisher Les Simpson said in a Globe-News story Sunday by Brad Newman. "This arrangement allows us to work together for the benefit of readers and viewers."
