MSNBC.com is expanding its MSNBC.com Travel site to include fresh,
useful content from the world’s premier travel magazines. “People go to MSNBC.com to find information on a variety of topics,” said
Dean Wright, Editor of MSNBC.com. “Now, thanks to an array of outstanding
content partners, MSNBC.com Travel can help individuals navigate the huge
world of travel information from a trusted, centralized online source.”
As part of the expanded MSNBC.com Travel offering, Wright and his team are
bringing on dozens of industry partners to provide a well-rounded cadre
of news and information for consumers seeking journalistic travel advice.
American Express Publishing, World Publications and Primedia are among
the global media partners engaged to provide editorial features on
everything from golf, surf, sport fishing, hiking and kayaking vacations
to spa getaways, business travel, island vacations, luxury travel, budget
travel and more.
“By partnering with industry experts in numerous niche markets, MSNBC.com
Travel takes the guesswork out of travel research,” said Wright.
“Individuals can simply turn to MSNBC.com to find the best resources for
the type of adventures they follow. For individuals actually planning an
excursion, this unbiased research creates a great starting point.”
Select content from each publisher will be offered on MSNBC.com Travel,
with direct links to each magazine for further reading. MSNBC.com Travel
has approximately four million unique users each month, and is anticipated
to grow by year-end. The revamped Travel site will increase the quantity
and diversity of content exponentially, which will draw even more traffic
to not only MSNBC.com Travel, but also to each partner’s web site. New
content partners will continue to be added as MSNBC.com develops this
fully appointed, one-stop travel resource.
