LOS ANGELES (AP) — Yahoo is taking another big step toward original news programming and away from just being an aggregator of content.

The website is partnering with CNBC on original financial news stories and video. It will feature CNBC content prominently on its front page and the Yahoo Finance page.

Starting immediately, the site will feature a breaking news ticker, modules produced by the CNBC newsroom and new material on stock quote pages.

In one of the first examples of the partnership, CNBC international correspondent Michelle Caruso-Cabrera will collaborate with Yahoo on covering the upcoming Greek elections and investor concerns about the euro zone.

Yahoo vice president of news and finance Rob Barrett said the partnership is similar to Yahoo's deal with ABC News, which kicked off in October.
