When it launched in 2009, GlobalPost became the first American, web-based news organization to provide daily international news coverage by its own correspondents all over the world. Shortly after its debut, The New York Times wrote: “GlobalPost has begun offering a mix of news and features that only a handful of other news organizations can rival.” Today, GlobalPost continues to deliver original reporting on vital international news and public policy issues from its network of experienced journalists. With sections covering a variety of subject areas including: Business and Technology, Health, Environment, Politics, Culture and Lifestyle; GlobalPost provides its readers, which come from more than 200 countries each month, the latest news and in-depth reporting. In just 4 years, GlobalPost has received several of the most important awards in American journalism, including the prestigious Peabody Award; the Overseas Press Club Award for Breaking News, two Edward R. Murrow Awards; 25 Best in Business Journalism Awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW); and the Pictures of the Year “Global Vision” award for original photography.
