Bloomberg TV Malaysia, which is set for launch on 7 July, has teamed up with the Star Media Group to provide cross platform business news.

The alliance will see journalists from Malaysia's English daily newspaper The Star appear on Bloomberg TV Malaysia via live link from The Star's studio in Menara Star. Reporters from both entities will also undergo training at Bloomberg TV's regional headquarters in Hong Kong and at Bloomberg TV Indonesia in Jakarta.

"This partnership will not only benefit our team but will deliver great value to the business community here in Malaysia. We will be offering world-class business news by adhering to the best practices and highest standards from Bloomberg," said Seri Effendi Norwawi, chairman, Bloomberg TV Malaysia.

Star Publications group managing director and CEO, Seri Wong Chun Wai, added: "The tie-up benefits both sides as journalists from the business desk will have a chance to be exposed on television while Bloomberg TV Malaysia will benefit from our print, digital and radio platforms."
