    TORONTO, June 4 /CNW/ - Global National announced today the launch of
four new international news bureaus, slated to open this summer. The Global
National foreign bureaus will be based in London, Beijing, New Delhi and
Jerusalem.
    "Canadians recognize that events on the other side of the globe can have
a profound impact on their lives," said Troy Reeb, Vice President of Global
News. "With these new bureaus, Global National will bring its signature
storytelling to the world, with more in-depth coverage of global issues from a
distinct Canadian perspective. In a time when many other news organizations
are scaling back, Global National is doing the opposite by expanding our news
division and adding these bureaus."
    Each foreign news bureau will be staffed by a team of talented Canadian
journalists with expertise in each region. The news team strengthens Global
National's positioning of "News Understood" - connecting with audiences
coast-to-coast, bringing clarity to complex issues and events of the day and
making them relevant to viewers.
