Yahoo! and ABC News announced an alliance designed to enhance the digital delivery of news by combining Yahoo! News' large audience and far-reaching content with ABC News' operations, anchors, and reporters. According to Gigamo, the alliance debuts with the launch of GoodMorningAmerica.com on Yahoo!

More than 100 million people make up the monthly combined audience of the alliance across smartphones, tablets, and computers.
As part of the agreement, ABC News will become the primary news provider on Yahoo! News, and the editorial teams will collaborate on premium news content. Yahoo! will deliver advertising solutions, including video ad opportunities, with ABC Sales. The new web video series will include interview series Newsmakers, Around the World with Christiane Amanpour, and This Could Be Big, with additional programs to be introduced in the coming months.
