Global Journalist covers international news with a focus on parts of the world rarely covered in mainstream media. We tell the international stories that matter and the stories of the people who cover them.

The Global Journalist radio show is a half-hour weekly discussion on international affairs with panels of journalists and experts. Global Journalist is produced by faculty, staff and students of the Missouri School of Journalism in conjunction with KBIA, Mid-Missouri Public Radio. The program is hosted by Jason McLure, a former international correspondent for Bloomberg News and Newsweek.
