As part of the agreement, Tribune’s Fox affiliate will broadcast reports from the offices of the Meriden Record-Journal during its 4 p.m. newscast.
Tribune Broadcasting’s Fox affiliate WTIC Hartford, Conn. (DMA 30), and the Record-Journal of Meriden, Conn., on Tuesday announced the formation of a news content-sharing agreement.
The two organizations will exchange stories and images that focus on local communities and share them with their respective audiences during TV newscasts, in their newspapers and online.
WTIC has built a remote studio at the Meriden offices of the Record-Journal that will allow live reports by newspaper reporters during the station’s 4 p.m. newscast.
“Any opportunity where we can share local content is a win-win for the viewers and readers of these two outstanding news organizations,” said Rich Graziano, VP-GM of WTIC. “Partnering with the Record-Journal reinforces Fox CT as a statewide news organization, giving our newscasts a greater and wider impact, which is ultimately our mission.”
“We are looking forward to a strong partnership with FOX CT that benefits both news organizations,” said Record-Journal Publisher Eliot C. White. “This is an opportunity for the Record-Journal to deliver our unique local content to an expanded audience and to market our products throughout the state.”
