IHT Joins Forces with AsiaSentinel.com

The International Herald Tribune has signed a content sharing agreement with online magazine Asia Sentinel.

Hong Kong, China, December 05, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The International Herald Tribune (IHT) and Asia Sentinel, the regional Web magazine of news, comment and analysis, announced they have signed an agreement to share news content on IHT.com and asiasentinel.com, significantly broadening the offering of Asia news and features on both Web sites.

Under the terms of the content-sharing arrangement, the two sites feature headlines from each other’s sites. Headlines from asiasentinel.com are featured on IHT.com’s Asia-Pacific section front. IHT.com headlines are featured on the home page of asiasentinel.com.

“The Internet is all about breadth and depth,” said Leonard M. Apcar, deputy managing editor of the International Herald Tribune and chief Asia editor. “Asiasentinel.com and IHT.com are ideal partners providing readers an international perspective and a report that is rooted in Asia.”

Asia Sentinel, which is based in Hong Kong, was founded by veteran Asia journalists and editors in August 2006.

“This is a very important step for us,” said John Berthelsen, the editor of Asiasentinel.com “Affiliating with an internationally respected publication like the IHT not only gives us the potential to reach new readers, but it demonstrates that we are to be taken seriously as a news organization that publishes news, analysis and opinion on national and regional issues.”

IHT.com is the web site for the world’s globalist. Its international audience of affluent, influential users is growing dramatically, attracted by the high quality news, business, culture, style and travel content with a unique international perspective. The International Herald Tribune, the premier international newspaper for opinion leaders and decision-makers around the globe, is the leading international paper in Asia. It recently expanded its presence in Asia by opening a news bureau in Hong Kong.
