BBC Linking To Local News Sites

Links to external news media sites are to become a more common presence on the BBC website.

According to Journalism.co.uk, the corporation has stated that it will include more links to local newspaper websites from its own local news channels in order to become a guide to content elsewhere.

In addition, the BBC is currently experimenting with in-video linking to video content on other websites.

A statement from the broadcaster also revealed that it is looking into establishing training partnerships with local news providers.

In November 2008 the BBC Trust rejected proposals for a network of local news websites with video content.
