The Associated Press and TVN Agency (TVN) today announced a two year extension to the newsgathering cooperation that began in 2009. The Warsaw-based agency will supply video news stories from Poland for further distribution to AP clients worldwide.
Under terms of the deal, TVN will continue to be AP's sole supplier of video content from Poland. The stories supplied will cover key political, social, economic and sports news. TVN will also provide live broadcasts from key news events for AP clients in cooperation with TVN 24, Poland's leading 24/7 news channel.
Since the start of this cooperation TVN has provided AP with over 450 news stories from Poland, including the 2010 Air Force Tu-154 crash, the Polish Presidency in the EU, the 2011 parliamentary elections and 2012 European Football Championships.
"I am happy about the extension of our cooperation. The trust our partner has put in us is recognition that the services we provide are up to the world's highest standards," said Tomasz Nabakowski, TVN’s director.
"AP has worked very closely with TVN over the past four years, and we are pleased our ongoing collaboration will continue to deliver news from Poland to broadcasters around the world," said Sandy MacIntyre, AP Vice President and Director of International Video.
