The Washington Post announced Thursday it will begin a partnership with The Texas Tribune that includes “shared editorial content, collaboration on events and more.”
The Texas Tribune, a non-profit newsroom based in Austin, Texas, will give The Post “exclusive outside-of-Texas access” to its stories, writes Post Executive Editor Martin Baron. Tribune reporters will also contribute to a broad swath of sections on The Post’s website, including The Fix, Post Politics, GovBeat and PostTV.
Together we’ll pursue a presidential debate in Texas while also co-sponsoring events. The first event, a half-day symposium titled “Texas on the Potomac,” is scheduled for January 29 in Washington.
