News agencies reach deal to cover IPL
Advertisement
#1
LONDON: The 2009 Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament in South Africa will be covered by major news agencies after the issues that had caused many news media to suspend IPL coverage last year were resolved.

The IPL and the News Media Coalition (NMC), an association that represents a worldwide collection of news organisations, said on Thursday they had agreed terms of coverage for the forthcoming season, and the IPL said it would extend a deadline for media to apply to cover the event by 24 hours.

“The outcome allows us to provide coverage of what promises to be a newsworthy spectacle. We are grateful for the time that the IPL’s officers have put into our successful dialogue,” NMC spokesman Andrew Moger said.

IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi said, “We are pleased to have reached this agreement with the global news media industry.”

Clause removed

The main sticking point, a clause that barred news organisations from distributing news and photos to specialised cricket websites, has been removed following negotiations.

“It’s a great outcome,” said Dave Tomlin, the AP’s associate general counsel. “Cricket is big news and we want to cover it. Now we can.”

The major news agencies declined to cover last year’s tournament because of similar issues. — Agencies
