  • All of these products and services are available to existing CNN affiliates as well as new linear and digital publisher partners.

Greg Beitchman, Vice President, Content Sales and Partnerships, CNN International, said, “Without doubt, the 2016 elections is lining up to be a truly international event, with foreign policy and the US’s global  economic, cultural and diplomatic role at the heart of the debate. CNN has developed this CNN Politics product to give our linear and digital publisher partners the opportunity to utilise our journalism and expertise in telling the story of the elections. Adding our dedicated reporters, multi-media content and the power of the CNN Politics brand will give publishers an edge over the competition.”

Ed O’Keefe, Vice President, CNN Money and CNN Politics, said, “The engagement and interest in this election cycle is unprecedented. And CNN Politics has been the number one political news destination since the campaign officially kicked off in March of 2015, outranking all other competitors month after month. We’re using every tool in the toolbox to tell this story in striking and compelling ways and it’s resonating with our audience all over the world.”
