John Pullman, global head of video and pictures at Reuters, sent out the following announcement on Thursday:
I am delighted to announce that Reuters has two new customers in the USA – CBS and ABC.
CBS has returned to Reuters after a couple of years away. It’s great to have them back.
ABC has become a Reuters customer for the first time in the company’s history.
The two deals mean that for the first time ever Reuters has a clean sweep of the main US TV networks – ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and Fox.
Both ABC and CBS have realised that they cannot operate a successful news business without Reuters. Like all our customers, they depend on the brilliant, brave work we produce day in, day out. These two deals are a testament to your hard work.
Thank you for all your efforts – they’re hugely appreciated by me, and by our customers.
