As rumored, Texas Tribune and New York Times to partner

You read it here first and probably forgot/ignored it, but the Texas Tribune has now announced/acknowledged that it will partner with the New York Times.

From the TT:
Starting Oct. 29, we'll be the third local partner in the Times' stable, joining our nonprofit pals at The Bay Citizen and the Chicago News Cooperative in providing homegrown reporting and analysis to augment that of the very capable journalists in the paper's regional bureaus. Specifically, we'll be publishing a total of eight stories a week that will run on Fridays and Sundays in print editions of the Times distributed in Texas. The stories will appear in two-page sections labeled "Texas," and they'll be billed as a collaboration between the Trib and the Times. There will be also a new, Texas-branded area of the Times' website — accessible, obviously, no matter where you live — that will showcase even more of the Trib's work.
My March scooplet: "Heard through the grapevine that the New York Times and the Texas Tribune are considering a collaboration, possibly something like what the Times has done with locally produced content in San Francisco and Chicago."
