As traditional news outlets slash their bureaus around the world, GlobalPost.com has redefined the old reporting model, launching an online international news gathering and syndication service in partnership with Mochila, a premium content syndication technology platform and network. Launched on Jan. 12, GlobalPost.com chose Mochila to be the principal architect and developer of its website and Mochila also continues to distribute to GlobalPost a steady stream of content from Mochila's syndication service's vast portfolio of articles, video and photos.

"We are extremely excited about the launch of GlobalPost. Having worked closely with them from the very beginning, we feel that our deep media experience coupled with our technology platform allows us to deliver real significant value to our members." said Benjamin Chen, Chairman & CTO of Mochila.

Mochila came out of stealth mode in April 2006 and has forged partnerships with hundreds of the biggest and most powerful media companies in the world. The Mochila network of sites uses a proprietary technology platform that meets the unique needs of content owners, publishers, and advertisers. Members include The Associated Press, Reuters, AFP, Getty, Splash, WENN, Gannett, Tribune Company, Belo Corporation, Media General, Scripps, Hachette Filipacchi Media, Hearst Corporation, Greenspun Media Group, Rodale, AMI, MSNBC, CNET, and Topix.

GlobalPost.com was co-founded by CEO Philip S. Balboni and Vice President/Executive Editor Charles M. Sennott who have sought out a new model of journalism that incorporates the values of great journalism, independence, and broad coverage of the world from a team of nearly 70 outstanding foreign correspondents.

"Mochila has been a trusted partner in the creation of GlobalPost.com from the start," said Mr. Balboni. "Their platform development expertise has allowed us to manage an extraordinary volume of great content from our reporters in every corner of the globe and provide an excellent user experience. Their content syndication service helps us provide our audience a comprehensive view of what is happening in the world."
