Investigative News Network Joins the Reuters Media Platform

Thomson Reuters announced today it has added Investigative News Network’s (INN) long-form investigative journalism to its media platform as part of its mission to create a one-stop news shop for publishers and broadcasters globally.

“Publishers are telling us investigative news is extremely valuable, but seems to be the first thing cut when resources get tight,” said Chris Ahearn, president of Media for Thomson Reuters. “The new relationship with INN is another step towards addressing the market’s need and providing our clients with stories they won’t find anywhere else.”

Thirty INN members have signed on with the investigative news offering, including the Center for Public Integrity, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the St. Louis Beacon, and the Rocky Mountain Investigative News Network.

“Investigative reporting is at the forefront of our mission, and we’re excited to expand our reach and serve Reuters clients around the globe,” said Kevin Davis, chief executive officer, INN.

INN is the newest component to the comprehensive coverage and delivery platform Reuters is building to meet the diverse needs of publishers and broadcasters around the world. It represents one additional step toward one stop fulfillment of its media client needs worldwide.
