Global News is now Global Post

Global News Enterprises, the new Boston international news startup, has announced its new branding (as Global Post) and its launch date, January 12. They’ve also put together a six-minute intro video with lots of thunderous foreign-correspondent-on-the-march music. I like the typeface!

(N.B.: In the interest of full disclosure, the Nieman Foundation has a few associations with Global Post. Charlie Sennott, the top editor, is an ex-Nieman Fellow and a friend of the foundation’s; our curator and my boss, Bob Giles, is on Global’s advisory board. And Andy Meldrum — seen in that video being manhandled by the Zimbabwean authorities — is another former fellow and a good friend. They’re an interesting enough company, so we can’t just ignore them, and we’ll be as evenhanded as we can. But nota bene nonetheless.)
