Furthering efforts to establish an international footprint for the AP Mobile news network, AP announced today that local news stories from six leading Latin America newspapers are now being delivered by The Associated Press across the popular AP Mobile news network.
Through a content distribution deal that AP struck with Grupo de Diarios América (GDA), newly added to the roster of AP Mobile news providers are regional newspapers such as: El Tiempo (Colombia), La Nación (Costa Rica), El Comercio (Ecuador), El Nuevo Día (Puerto Rico), El País (Uruguay), and El Nacional (Venezuela). AP Móvil features regional, national and world news from AP and Latin American and Caribbean content from participating media organizations.
"Teaming up with GDA bolsters our efforts to provide consumers local stories in their local languages, creating an international footprint for mobile news across today's most popular phones and wireless devices," said Jeff Litvack, AP's general manager of mobile and emerging products. "On any given day, AP Mobile gives mobile news readers access to more than 18,000 local stories from around the globe, and we're excited to bring GDA into the mix."
