BuzzFeed, CNN to Team Up on News Channel

Get your lists ready: BuzzFeed and CNN are partnering up to create a YouTube news channel that will be unveiled on Tuesday. Named CNN BuzzFeed, the channel will have both archival and current content on CNN that will be shared over social-media networks. BuzzFeed chief operating officer Jon Steinberg told The Wall Street Journal that BuzzFeed will invest a low “eight-digit sum” in the platform. This is the latest—and splashiest—attempt by BuzzFeed to establish itself as a news organization, following the launch of a business section earlier this month.
