World Brief

Venezuelan-based news channel TeleSur has inked a content exchange and news gathering support pact with the BBC. Agreement signed by BBC News’ Adrian van Klaveren and TeleSur prexy Andres Izarra follows similar pacts with Al Jazeera, Canal France International and Russia Today.

Footprint of the 24-hour news channel extends from Alaska to the tip of southern America — a potential 300 million viewers. DirectTV satellite subs receive it all day while some local channels in the region pick up one to four hours of its broadcast. Telesur reaches viewers in Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela.
