Press agency Sportsbeat is to make its content available online for the first time.
The website will syndicate copy from over 40 sports (excluding football, cricket and rugby union).
From its newsrooms in London and Manchester Sportsbeat provides over 20,000 stories a year to over 150 newspaper clients across the UK.
‘The prospect of the 2012 Olympics has already seen an increase in appetite for content from the editors we supply,’said managing editor James Toney.
‘We are dedicated to providing coverage of these Olympics sports all year round – and not just the big international events but competitions at national, regional and local level.”
Gerard Meagher and Tom Reynolds have been appointed to the agency’s London newsdesk.
