Ebyline Launches New Service For Publishers

Los Angeles-based Ebyline, the online marketplace which connects publishers with freelance journalists, has rolled out a new offering today, which it says can help publishers produce their own, custom news feeds. The service, called Ebyline News Desk, allows publishers to create their own, custom feeds of original content. Pricing on the new product was not disclosed. Ebyline, which is headed by Bill Momary, said the new service looks to fill the game that traditional wire services have been unable to fill. Ebyline's contributors are vetted journalists. The firm said the new service allows publishers to order such things as four stories per month on their local sports team, stories on the Hollywood entertainment beat, and more.
