CBS News an­nounces part­ner­ship with BBC

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Bri­tain’s BBC News is end­ing a lon­grun­ning agree­ment to share re­port­ing and re­sources with ABC News in the United States and in­stead will match up with CBS.

CBS News pres­i­dent David Rhodes said Thurs­day the deal with the BBC gives the net­work ac­cess to an or­ga­ni­za­tion that is larger and more com­pre­hen­sive than Sky News, which had been its Bri­tish part­ner. He said it does not mean CBS will be look­ing to cut back on its own staff.

BBC spokes­woman Char­lotte Mor­gan said the Bri­tish net­work has worked in­for­mally with CBS over the past few years and that the Amer­i­can net­work matches its cur­rent needs well. The BBC thanked ABC for “a long and fruit­ful part­ner­ship.’’
