AP, Texas Tribune to share select news content in new collaboration 

The Associated Press and The Texas Tribune today announced a content sharing agreement, in which both organizations will benefit from each other’s journalism.

The Texas Tribune will receive access to AP’s Texas news and its comprehensive immigration coverage from across the United States and beyond. The AP will now distribute the Tribune’s reporting on Texas to its members and customers, complementing the news organization’s existing coverage of the state.

“This agreement is a great example of how two mission driven news organizations can work together to bolster their news report and better serve their audiences,” said AP’s U.S. News Director Josh Hoffner. “It’s an exciting step toward strengthening the news ecosystem in a state that produces huge amounts of news every day.”

“The Texas Tribune is thrilled to be part of this new agreement with The Associated Press, which will give our nonprofit newsroom access to The AP’s agenda-setting coverage of immigration policy and Texas state issues, while The AP will help our free, nonpartisan, public-service journalism reach an even wider audience,” said Texas Tribune Editor in Chief Sewell Chan. “We already use The AP’s authoritative elections data; this agreement takes our collaboration to a new level. The AP is the backbone of the news ecosystem in America — and across much of the world. I’m deeply excited by The AP’s interest in working with state and local nonprofit newsrooms, which are a bright spot in a rapidly changing news industry.”
