HispanoPost, EFE partner on mobile Spanish-language news syndication
December 2, 2016
HispanoPost and the American Spanish-language affiliate EFE News have signed a partnership in which the agency reporters will be able to produce stories on video as part of HispanoPost's B2B content service provision.
The videos will include original content, exclusives, in-depth and investigative journalism, produced for mobile devices.
"We have a golden opportunity to demonstrate the value for future that cell phones have as a tool for journalism,” said Manuel Aguilera, CEO of HispanoPost. “To support this challenge we have partnered with the best associate, the network of correspondents of EFE News in the United States. Their experience and rigorousness when reporting news is the perfect complement to our abilities to tell stories with mobile devices. We will both be served from the knowledge of our areas of specialization to maximise synergies and increase the added value of our products and services."
This collaboration will initially include the main markets in the United States, but is expected to gradually be expanded to other countries around the world. The videos will be destined for distribution to the various digital and television media that access the service portfolio of HispanoPost.
"We participate on the development of this project with HispanoPost with the purpose of widening our presence in the world with information launched in Spanish and in order to increase visibility for the great work our reporters do in the United States," said Laureano García, vice president of EFE News. “I am sure that HispanoPost will have a long journey not only because is a new perspective and a different way of telling stories but also because they will be soon established as a suggestive window to contemplate reality."
