The Washington Post and Bloomberg will launch a global news service, The Washington Post News Service with Bloomberg News, which will feature 120 news stories a day from both sources. The service will be available to subscribers, web services, and other newspapers.

The two will also produce a co-branded web-based business news page on washingtonpost.com, incorporating content from the Post and from the Bloomberg.com web site. In addition, the Post's entire news content, including breaking-news alerts, will be available in real time as part of the Bloomberg Professional service, which currently has more than 300,000 users.
