The National Geographic Society and digital news and culture magazine OZY have announced a content partnership that extends to National Geographic’s digital and social media platforms.
As a result of the partnership, OZY-branded content will appear on www.nationalgeographic.com, while additional OZY stories will be regularly shared via National Geographic’s social channels.
“We are always evaluating potential media partnerships and are excited to introduce our audience to relevant content from OZY, as they share with us a commitment to forward-thinking content that’s rooted in quality journalism. They are proving effective in attracting and engaging curious consumers with accessible coverage on a variety of important topics that are also of interest to our National Geographic community,” said Declan Moore, chief media officer of National Geographic. “We look forward to growing a long-term, mutually beneficial and meaningful relationship.”
“National Geographic is a global institution. We’re honoured to be working so closely together and know there are great things to come,” said Carlos Watson, CEO and co-founder of OZY. “Whether taking viewers on an expedition to the far reaches of the Earth or using images to show us the world in a whole new way, they constantly inspire us to do more, and see more. That’s something we strive for at OZY every day.”
OZY was founded in September 2013 and has already reached 5.5m monthly unique visitors. It is primarily a VC-backed media company that boasts investors including Axel Springer.
