NewsNow Delivers Free Feeds to Editorial Teams

November 18th 2002

The UK's leading news aggregator is to deliver free newsfeeds to editorial teams of over four persons. The news feeds will be tailored to their needs and be received in the form of email alerts to team members.

"We are aware that editorial teams need to track online news in the same way as many of our customers and we recognise the importance of demonstrating to journalists the power of NewsNow's tailored services so we have decided to offer them free tailored services for a year," says NewsNow chief executive Nick Gilbert.

"We have spoken to a lot of journalists and found that a large percentage are unable to tap into newsfeeds because there are no budgets to do so. We like to think NewsNow will be able to fill the gap and help keep them more in touch with breaking news."

"We already know that hundreds of journalists know and use our site. Now we are inviting them to sample the paid-for service at no cost."

Interested journalists can contact NewsNow direct or via the free trial offer on the web site at www.NewsNow.co.uk. Email alerts will be sent directly to team email addresses.
