The NBC affiliate will contribute video, aerial photography and weather information to the paper and its Web site, while newspaper reporters and columnists will appear on the station.
The Des Moines Register and Local TV’s NBC affiliate WHO have signed an agreement “to work together to expand their content and expertise in an effort to provide the most complete coverage possible to central Iowans.”
WHO will provide additional video, aerial photography, weather information, including severe weather and school closings to The Register and DesMoinesRegister.com to complement The Register‘s current print and online offerings. Register reporters and columnists will appear on-air at WHO. Both companies anticipate working together on significant news events as they arise.
“This is simply about allowing central Iowans more choice for accessing Register coverage and content and making that convenient and flexible to suit their lifestyle. We’re pleased to be working with Channel 13″ said Laura Hollingsworth, Register president and publisher.
“The biggest winner in this agreement will be central Iowa news and information consumers,” says WHO Regional Vice President and General Manager Dale R. Woods. “We discovered the strengths of Channel 13 News and those of The Des Moines Register complement each other very well and will create fuller, richer content on all our platforms.”
