MONACO — Declaring that news providers in the U.S. are not “satisfying the needs” of publishers and broadcasters, Reuters will be expanding its offerings in the United States, with major announcements to come over the next couple of months, says Chris Ahearn, President of Media, Thomson Reuters in this exclusive video interview with Beet.TV
Ahearn declined to offer specifics, but said the global news service had not focused on the U.S. domestic market. He said that India and China are two other big growth markets for the company.
News Is Not a Commodity
Facts and solid reporting is not a commodity and in fact will increase in value for Reuters and its customers, Ahearn says.
I interviewed him at the Monaco Media Forum last week.
