The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard magazines, two Prometheus Global Media titles, signed on for content distribution through the Associated Press today. The content will be made available on the AP beginning this month.
The entertainment feed will include both feature stories and breaking news from the two magazines. This new deal provides “a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive package of entertainment stories every day,” says AP’s managing editor for entertainment Lou Ferrara in a press statement.
The Hollywood Reporter editorial director Janice Min and Billboard editorial director Bill Werde both cite the AP’s global distribution as a main benefit of the deal.
