About Us

TalkMediaNews was launched by Ellen Ratner, a news veteran with more than three decades of experience and one of the most respected journalists in Washington.

Recognizing opportunity in the increasingly exclusive community of news outlets, Ms. Ratner structured TalkMediaNews as a subscription-based service providing exclusive breaking news content to media companies, websites and bloggers around the world.

TalkMediaNews is one of a select few custom-media content providers with bureaus at the White House, Congress, Pentagon,  Supreme Court and the United Nations and correspondents nationwide.

TalkMediaNews journalists reflect the changing nature of the industry: from veterans of national daily newspapers and network news contributors to emerging leaders in the digital landscape. Their wide-range of issue expertise enables TalkMediaNews subscribers to select from a variety of daily news topics and deliver content in any format, from video or audio broadcasts to written news stories, which they can download on-demand.
