The Mega Agency will be syndicating photo content from the New York Post under an exclusive arrangement. Mega will syndicate the Post’s home-grown content to newspapers, magazines, websites and broadcasters across the globe. The Posts’s content has been handled by Splash News since 2002. Founded in 1801, the NY Post is the seventh-most-widely circulated newspaper in the United States and proudly boasts of being the nation’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper. It is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, which also publishes The Wall Street Journal, The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times.
On the deal, Post Managing Editor of Photo, David Boyle, a former Sun picture desk executive, told PhotoArchiveNews.com: “We are delighted to rejoin forces with Kevin Smith, David Leigh, Paul Tetley and the rest of the Mega team. They bring together a first class, professional operation that I believe is good for both photographers and publishers alike.”
Former Mirror and Express executive David Leigh, Mega’s Chief Content Officer, said it was a ‘great honour’ to have been chosen to syndicate the Post’s photographic content. “These are exciting times at Mega and we’re delighted to have signed another very prestigious syndication deal,” he said. “I think it shows the confidence these very important media partners have in the Mega team. We have always had a terrific relationship with the Post, working very closely with the photo desk, and we’re thrilled to be able to further enhance that with this new partnership deal.”
The Post partnership comes just a month after Mega announced a similar deal with American Media Inc.
