Apple announced on Tuesday that it will open its news platform, Apple News, to publishers big and small.  This runs the spectrum from large traditional outlets (which already have a huge share of Apple News) butique and local outlets, as well as individuals.

From Apple:

You can author once and News will optimize your content for all iOS devices, so your readers will have a great experience no matter which device they use. It’s easy to connect to existing content management systems, and you get access to a rich suite of tools to measure user engagement with your content.

Laura Hazard Owen of NiemanLab reports on this development and what it could mean for news as we know it today.
