ACBJ strikes content deal with Financial Times
American City Business Journals has struck a deal with The Financial Times allowing it to use some of the FT’s content.
The arrangement allows Charlotte-based ACBJ to publish a few pieces of Financial Times content every day on the 40 local business journal sites.
“We will make this content available only to paid subscribers, which adds another perk to our subscription package,” said Jon Wile, vice president of content for ACBJ, in an email. “This content will only be on our sites, not in the printed weekly editions.”
ACBJ has print newspapers from Boston to Honolulu. It also operates online-only business news publications in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Japanese newspaper Nikkei acquired The Financial Times from London-based publisher Pearson PLC in 2015 for approximately $1.3 billion.
The FT has made it a goal of reaching 1 million subscribers, with the United States as a key market.
