CNBC has struck a content-sharing deal with Yahoo that will expand the financial network's online reach and provide a broadcast platform for Yahoo Finance's content and contributors.

Like the Yahoo-ABC News partnership announced last October, the CNBC-Yahoo deal will include a new slate of co-branded original videos, which will premiere on Yahoo Finance and CNBC.com this fall.

The partnership, financial terms of which were not disclosed, also includes joint sponsorship sales opportunities, with CNBC serving as the go-to-market sales lead. Both Yahoo and CNBC will maintain editorial control of their respective sites.

Yahoo Finance journalists will also contribute to CNBC's Business Day programming and in turn, CNBC video clips and content will be featured across the Yahoo network. The two companies will have a combined unduplicated online audience of more than 40 million people, according to comScore.

"This collaboration is about two leaders in their respective spaces coming together," said Mark Hoffman, president and CEO of CNBC in announcing the relationship. "With CNBC taking a central role on the biggest business news site in the world, we now have the ability to provide real-time news, analysis and information to a larger audience and offer unmatched advertising solutions for marketers looking for access across multiple platforms."
