NBC News Is Building a Global Contributing Journalist Network


NBC News is about to expand its global footprint with the creation of a global contributing journalist network. Cal Perry who has been with the NBC News organization as a broadcast journalist for MSNBC will relocate to london where he will lead the charge as Global Editor, Digital Content, building a network of contributing journalists and video producers. The move was announced by Nick Ascheim, SVP of Digital for NBC News Group via email to the NBC news staff.


An important component of our journey toward digital video dominance is expanding our presence globally so that we can better source stories and compelling video from around the world. To that end, we are going to build a roster of contributing journalists from around the world that will focus on a range of stories, from hard news and global politics to off-beat local features. Drawing on the work from this community, we will strengthen our global coverage and enhance the work we are doing abroad. (Of course our international teams are already doing great work as evidenced by Monday’s nod from SPJ Sigma Delta Chi Awards for our reporting on Brussels, the majority of which came from the amazing team in the London bureau).

To bring this idea to life, I’ve asked Cal Perry to take on the newly created role of Global Editor Digital Content, NBC News. Reporting to Catherine Kim and working in partnership with our newsroom leadership, Cal will draw on his vast international experience to establish and manage this community of journalists. He will assemble a network that will produce content for all our platforms - digital and linear — and will also help our new partner, Euronews. Cal will be based in our London Bureau and start his new role immediately.

Please join me in congratulating Cal and stay tuned for more details on this opportunity as it develops over the coming months.
