venture between Business Wire and Medialink, has nabbed two top

editorial staffers from ABCNews.com.



ABC online pioneer Les Blatt has been named managing editor of the

Internet portal, which is planned for launch in November. The site will

provide multimedia content to an estimated 6,000 news sites.



Blatt will oversee the design and implementation of the web site, and

manage a team of online editors who will assemble the material and

organize its distribution to online newsrooms. An online editorial

producer at ABC News since 1995, Blatt was previously editorial producer

for ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings for 12 years.



Also joining the 10-strong Newstream.com team is Lilian Huang, a 10-year

veteran of ABC News who migrated over to ABCNews.com in 1994. As senior

producer, Huang will promote the multimedia news content from corporate

clients to the online news media.



Further announcements, including full technical specifications are

expected within the next week.
