Redding News Review, Black UK Online Partnership Launched

By Staff Report

    WASHINGTON, June 20, 2005, 9:45 a.m. - Thousands in England now have direct access to Redding News Review's content thanks to a permanent partnership with local top news site Black UK Online.

    "The Web is already worldwide, so to form a partnership with such a dominant overseas news aggregator is key to our long term growth," said Robert "Rob" Redding, editor and publisher of Redding News Review.


    The Suffolk-based Web site started in August 2003. It receives 78,000 unique visitors a month and distributes a monthly magazine, which is distributed to 1,490 churches in the UK and is read by over 200,000 people. 

    The agreement will mean the two sites will link to each other, share content and other future services, Redding said.

    "The Web is an intensely competitive and increasingly political place where every single one of our black news competitors are owned by questionable major mainstream corporations with unlimited resources," he said, "and this deal is key to insure that our independent content and products are globally recognized."

    The News Review -- a site that rivals top notch competitors such as Drudge Report and Black America Web, Black Voices and BET -- is an unmatched in up-to-the-minute breaking news with an emphasis in coverage of independent and minority issues.   

    The News Review has quickly become the fastest growing independent news sites sending more than 40,000 across the web daily. The site, which features links to both mainstream and black publications, has been credited for influencing news coverage by Upscale magazine, Rolling Out, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Times newspapers.

     Founded March 2002, The News Review's editorial philosophy has been to provide around the clock independent news - exposing the political nature of government and stories ignored or buried by mainstream media - while reviewing the minority voices of Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians, gays, the disabled, homeless, women and the elderly.
