Newspack by WordPress – a new solution for news organisations

Printing press
WordPress is teaming up with Google, Lenfest, ConsenSys, and Knight to develop “a next-generation publishing platform”.

The new solution will help small- and medium-sized news organisations access a powerful and inexpensive platform, so that they can focus on producing quality content and not have to worry as much about the tech.

Newspack will launch as a beta towards the end of July this year.

One of the partners is News Revenue Hub which offers revenue solutions for publishers, so the ‘helping hand’ being set up is not just about streamlining the publishing process.
