CBS News, the news division of CBS Corp., said on Thursday it signed a new editorial and
newsgathering partnership with the BBC.

The deal will allow the organizations to share video, editorial content and additional resources in New York, London, Washington and across the world, CBS News said.

The partnership between CBS News, which produces shows such as "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours", and BBC News will also help increase the content of each broadcaster's coverage, the U.S. broadcaster said.

The two organizations will begin sharing content immediately and additional newsgathering components will be added in the coming months, CBS News said.
