The Washington Post and Bloomberg are partnering to launch "The Washington Post News Service with Bloomberg News" which will provide content to newspapers, websites and other subscribers.

The move comes a day after the Post ended its partnership with the Tribune’s Los Angeles Times.

The Post and Bloomberg will produce a co-branded online business news page on washingtonpost.com, featuring content from both news outlets.  The Post’s news will also be available on Bloomberg’s professional service, which has more than 300,000 users.

"This is a formidable collaboration," said Marcus Brauchli, executive editor of The Washington Post.

"It brings together The Post’s vast expertise on politics and policy news in Washington with Bloomberg’s highly regarded global financial, economic and political news franchise. It also brings together The Post’s prize-winning feature writers and columnists with Bloomberg’s team of top-notch journalistic talent."

The move by Bloomberg is an attempt to widen its reach beyond its core financial clients. Bloomberg is also a likely candidate to purchase BusinessWeek magazine from McGraw-Hill, according to Reuters.

The Washington Post News Service with Bloomberg News will launch January 1, 2010. It will feature 120 stories daily along with photos, graphics and other story elements.

    Yes, it is alot like CNN and Yahoo. This seems to be a Better Fit. Bloomberg is a World Standard Brand for Business, Markets around the Globe and Investments.The Washington Post has the Best No Nonsence Editorial of What’s Going on With Capitol Hill and The Political scene around The World. I would add that they should have a Recap of Year 2009.’ The Good ,The Bad & The Ugly.’ From both perspectives, that would really Kick Start them Off. Also Predictions and Picks for 2010.

    PS: We would love to carry this and Advertise for them before hand and start Branding Immediatly
    Thank You.

    Sincerely Your in Business & World Affairs Journalistic Creative Freedom,
