What Is World News?

World news is news that covers events outside of the country in which a person lives. In some English-speaking countries, the term world news is used to differentiate it from “national” or “local” news, which refers to events directly related to the political or economic activities of a particular nation, such as wars in which the country is involved or meetings of multilateral organizations in which the nation is a member. People who work in the field of world news are generally called correspondents. They may cover an entire region, a country or even a continent. Correspondents regularly file stories to their news editor, often gathering information from local officials, members of the community and other sources.
