Black tech news site The Plug has reached a content distribution deal with Bloomberg News.

The move is among the first Black business news publications available on the Bloomberg terminal, which has approximately 325,000 subscribers.

“We’re beyond thrilled to have our journalism and research documenting the trends of Black innovation available to Bloomberg terminal subscribers who are looking for in-depth reporting and research to help them think inclusively about the state of business,” said Sherrell Dorsey, founder and CEO of The Plug, a company Dorsey founded in 2016 as a daily newsletter, in a statement.

“This new partnership and availability of our content marks a monumental shift in how Black tech movements and accompanying research is shaping and influencing business and the future of work at large.”

Since launching its original reporting platform in 2018, The Plug’s reporting and data insights have been seen in The Information, Fortune, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and other notable publications.
