Partners Yahoo and Belo have expanded their relationship. Belo, which recently split its newspaper and broadcast operations in October, is now the exclusive provider of local news video to Yahoo News in all Belo TV markets but Dallas and Boise. These include Austin, New Orleans, Phoenix, Portland and St. Louis. Local news clips will run in local Yahoo News pages, and Yahoo will share ad revenue created through the clips with Belo.
According to a company press release, the deal gives Yahoo local news video in 18 of the top 25 U.S. markets. Belo was among the original members of Yahoo’s growing group of newspaper partners and has distributed Yahoo’s HotJobs recruitment listings on its paper sites since 2005.
