ABC News and Yahoo today announced they are partnering online to “enhance and transform the delivery of news and information across the digital landscape.” It will make ABC News-produced content available on Yahoo News. The alliance launches today with the debut of GoodMorningAmerica.com on Yahoo and three new, online-first video series with ABC News anchors and correspondents. Newsmakers, an original interview series, kicks off today when Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos interviews President Barack Obama live at the White House at 2:35 PM ET. The interview will stream live on Yahoo.com and ABCNews.com. Also slated to do online-first interviews in Newsmakers are ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, Christiane Amanpour and Robin Roberts. The other two original online programs are Around The World With Christiane Amanpour and This Could Be Big. Additional programs will be added in 2012. Under the agreement, the news organizations will share content, co-produce coverage of some news events and have “integrated bureaus” in New York, Washington and Los Angeles. ABC News has been provider of video content to Yahoo since 2006. The move is expected to add some bandwidth to ABC News’ presence online, which has bee lagging behind other TV news organizations, and is designed to give troubled Internet giant Yahoo a shot in the arm.
