SEATTLE, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Regence BlueShield has partnered with KING5, a Seattle NBC affiliate, to provide health and wellness information on the health portion of the broadcast station's Web site: http://www.king5.com/health/healthy-living/.

"This partnership ensures KING5 Web site users will have health and wellness information from a reliable source."

The content posted on KING5 will be updated every two weeks. A direct link to myRegence.com is provided on the KING5 site and non-Regence members are invited to explore the Regence site with a special guest pass code.

"We were looking for a respected partner to provide our Web site users with valuable new information pertinent to health and wellness," said KING-TV President & General Manager Ray Heacox. "We're pleased that we are able to work with Regence concerning this important topic that is beneficial to all those who visit KING5.com."
