News Corp is launching a global service that will make all its news stories and videos instantly available to its entire network of TV, print and online news outlets.
The service, called NewsCore, will operate like a global wire service for all the company’s newspapers, TV networks and websites. News Corp is describing the venture as a “21st-century multi-media information service that will draw on the worldwide news and sports resources within News Corporation and make them available to other News properties everywhere”.
The NewsCore service will scan the company’s electronic story queues, satellite feeds and websites and make all the content available to company newsrooms around the planet. NewsCore will distribute text, video, audio and citizen journalism around the world in real time.
