CTV News announces partnership with POLITICO

CTV News has announced a new content partnership with U.S.-based subscription service POLITICO, which recently launched on this side of the border as POLITICO Pro Canada.

Headquartered in Arlington, VA, Politico was founded in 2007 and has established itself as a leader in political and policy news with 250 journalists across the U.S.

The collaboration will kick off with a co-branded weekly segment focusing on Canada-U.S. issues on CTV News Channel’s daily political program Power Play. “Inside Washington with POLITICO Pro” will air every Friday, beginning Oct. 26. POLITICO Pro Canada reporters Alex Panetta and Lauren Gardner will join CTV News Ottawa Bureau Chief Joyce Napier to discuss the most significant cross-border stories.

The partnership will also see both organizations contribute to political reporting on the other’s platforms, including a range of exclusive stories and digital content on CTVNews.ca.

“We are thrilled to bring POLITICO Pro’s in-depth reporting on Canada-U.S. issues to audiences across the country,” said Luiza Ch. Savage, Executive Director of POLITICO Pro Canada, in a press release. “Every day, our reporters go beyond the headlines to report key developments in Washington, D.C. and the states that affect Canadian businesses and government. Every week, this unique cross-border conversation will explore what it all means for Canadians.”

“We’re excited to launch this new partnership, a collaboration between two strong news organizations coming together to share valuable perspectives from both sides of the border,” said Wendy Freeman, President, CTV News. “At such a critical time for Canada-U.S. relations, Canadians can turn to CTV News for trusted political news and analysis that explores the most pressing issues facing the nation.”
