APBnews.com Syndicates Content to AOL

It was kind of a dog day afternoon down at the agency when the tip came in: APBnews.com signed a deal with America Online Inc. to syndicate its crime, justice and safety content to several AOL brands.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

APBnews.com will provide feeds of breaking news, features and personal safety information through co-branded sites available across AOL (AOL), AOL.com and Digital City.

The deal makes APBnews.com's content available to the largest user base to date.

The deal includes exclusive material for AOL members, a daily article on crime, justice or safety of interest to each Digital City location, and access for Digital City visitors to live police scanners in 28 major cities nationwide.

Founded in 1998, APBnews.com has a New York newsroom staffed by more than 50 veteran newspaper and television journalists.
