Reuters joins Russian web

The Reuters news agency has partnered with Russia’s Channel One (Ostankino) to provide services and resources for a new weekly Russian-language current affairs program.

Headed by commentator Vladimir Molchanov, it will include feature reports on politics, entertainment and sports.

The program will begin in mid-April.

Announcing the project, Reuters chief executive Peter Job cited the move as a sign of the agency’s commitment to a new market “at a time when Western companies are criticized for hanging back from the new Russia and not investing.”

The Reuters Moscow bureau is among the busiest in the world, with additional offices in Kiev and Tbilisi, and further plans for St. Petersburg and Almatu.

The announcement is a sign of a new trend in Russian broadcasting — toward locally produced fare and away from imported programming that may have limited relevance in the Russian market.
