Reuters Launches a Dedicated Audio and Voice Service, enabling its Customers to Expand and Engage their Audiences.


LONDON, June 24, 2020 — Reuters, the world’s largest multimedia news provider, has launched a market-leading service designed specifically for the audio and voice sector.

Two new products - Reuters Audio and Reuters Ready Audio - give customers access to a global collection of rights-cleared real-time and archive audio clips, as well as ready-to-publish audio stories.

With nearly half a million archive clips dating back to the early 1900s available, Reuters Audio customers have access to more than a century’s worth of news coverage at their fingertips, to add depth and dimension to their audio production, Reuters said.

Reuters Ready Audio provides a curated daily package of global news stories, voiced by Reuters journalists worldwide in a ready-to-publish offering.

Both are available from today via a new user experience on Reuters Connect, a comprehensive digital platform powering the news ecosystem.

The development comes as the audio market continues to grow, with consumers listening more than ever, driving high-quality audio content.

Recent research from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University found:

Reuters Audio and Reuters Ready Audio allow customers to enhance their existing audio productions instantly and spontaneously create brand-new audio experiences.

Nick Cohen, Global Head of Product, Core News Services, Reuters, said: “As demand for audio content continues to grow, podcasters, radio producers and platforms need an easy-to-access destination for high-quality material. With this new audio experience and a Reuters archive that goes back over a century, producers and publishers can now get instant access to hundreds of thousands of clips, whether they are looking for historical moments or the latest breaking news.”

Founded in 1851, Reuters, the news and media division of Thomson Reuters, is the world’s largest multimedia news provider. With coverage in over 16 languages, it reaches millions of people worldwide every day. Reuters supplies business, financial, national, and international news to professionals via desktop terminals, the world’s media organizations, and industry events.
