MSNBC, Conde Naste team on content; CNN choses Google

MSNBC.com, the Redmond-based news organization owned jointly by Microsoft and NBC parent GE, will present content from several Conde Naste outlets under a deal announced today.

According to a press release:

“The CondeNet brands that will share content with msnbc.com include Style.com, Men.Style.com, Epicurious.com, and Concierge.com. Content from Conde Nast’s publications, such as Vogue, Glamour, Self, GQ, Details, Men’s Vogue, Vanity Fair, Gourmet, Bon App├ętit, Conde Nast Traveler, and Conde Nast Portfolio will also be available on MSNBC.com.”

In another development, CNN.com — which ranks third, just ahead of MSNBC, on the list of most-visited news sites — will use Google’s pay-per-click advertising technology exclusively. It previously used Yahoo’s technology. See coverage from IDG News Service.

No word if Microsoft’s adCenter was in the running for this high-profile customer.
