It will have its own dedicated newsroom based at the CNN Center in New York and will draw up CNN’s news coverage experience as well as exclusive content from the magazines’ journalists and archival magazine content.

“This is the most exciting development for our business titles since we first began using the Web,” said John Huey, Time Inc.

This is going to give us a big competitive advantage because this is truly what the readers out there want.”

“After we established an online partnership with Money Magazine in October 2001, quickly became one of the Internet’s leading business and personal finance sites,” added CNN President Jim Walton. “Today, we’re excited about adding the resources and strengths of the other Time Inc. business and financial titles to further establish as the premier online site for breaking business news, personal finance features, commentary and planning tools.”
