Collegiate Presswire Enrolls U.S. Asian Wire for Strategic Marketing and Multicultural News-Distribution Alliance

CLIFTON, N.J.--(Collegiate Presswire - June 12, 2007) - Collegiate Presswire, the leading electronic distributor of press materials and marketing information to the nation's print, broadcast and online college media, and U.S. Asian Wire, the most comprehensive national newswire targeting Asian-America media outlets and organizations, announced today they have forged a strategic marketing and targeted news-distribution partnership.

The new distribution circuit, comprised of each newswire's national media reach, will be offered to clients as a bundled package at a discounted rate compared to ordering the two distributions separately.

Through the alliance, the two companies plan to increase dissemination of news content to national Asian-American media and organizations and national college and university media alike. The partnership, and resulting joint service offering, officially launched June 1.

"This is an exciting opportunity for us to help our clients additionally reach the desirable and diverse media audience that U.S. Asian Wire serves," said Matthew Farlie, Director of Business Development for Collegiate Presswire. "We are looking to this partnership to set the standard for Collegiate Presswire's expanded multicultural outreach efforts in the future."

The Asian-American population increased 9% since 1990, the highest growth rate of any ethnic group. Asian-Americans are also the most diverse ethnic group in the U.S., with the influence of more than 15 different cultures. Relative to the average U.S. adult, they are better educated and enjoy higher incomes.

"This is a remarkable opportunity for two leading targeted newswires to collaborate and complement each other, this is a natural fit and I look forward to continued growth in our relationship with Collegiate Presswire," stated Leslie Yngojo-Bowes, U.S. Asian Wire president and founder. " The Asian-American and U.S. university/college markets feature parallel consumer behaviors interested in electronics, technology, apparel, entertainment, banking, finance and other trends. Our allied distribution is extremely advantageous and highly attractive for marketers and corporate communicators worldwide as we reach audiences with a combined consumer buying power of nearly $700 billion."
