The Boston Globe and WBZ-TV, the local CBS station, today announced that they will begin a collaboration that will combine the news and feature resources of both media outlets. The Globe is owned by The New York Times Company, while WBZ-TV id owned-and-operated by CBS.
According to the announcement, the two media outlets will share breaking news and video on television, in print and online, bringing WBZ-TV's AccuWeather forecasts and meteorologists to The Globe, for instance.
The new collaboration will mean that TV viewers will probably be seeing Globe reporters providing interviews and analysis for WBZ-TV news reports, as well the use of Globe polls.
“The relationship with WBZ-TV is one more way for the Globe to extend its reach in Greater Boston, with a news organization that values quality journalism,” Caleb Solomon, the Globe’s managing editor, said.
