Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 23, 2009
An article in the New York Times today, written by media reporter Elizabeth Jensen, highlights the recent successes of the international news startup GlobalPost. Jensen writes: "GlobalPost has begun offering a mix of news and features that only a handful of other news organizations can rival." The story outlines GlobalPost's multiple revenue streams, including syndicating its content to respected news organizations like the Daily News and CBS Radio News, which the story notes "will be able to call on GlobalPost correspondents during breaking news, as a backup to its own reporters." The piece also describes GlobalPost's innovative membership subscription product service Passport, which, Jensen writes, "offers access to GlobalPost correspondents, including exclusive reports on business topics of less interest to general audience."
The Times also quotes Alan D. Mutter, a media investor who analyzes news-business models, who Jensen writes "praised GlobalPost in an interview."
"I think everyone wishes them well because they are pretty close to what the future will be for news publishing," says Mutter.
Launched in January 2009 by Charles Sennott and Philip Balboni, GlobalPost.com is the first Internet-based international news organization in America. GlobalPost.com has a staff of over 65 correspondents in 45 countries. GlobalPost has published nearly 2,000 original stories since its launch and has received more than half a million visits.
