Students in GEG 101 ONLINE! are required to keep an online News Journal (see assignments). In these journals we will attempt to apply geographic concepts to international news throughout the semester. There are many sources of international news, but sometimes we have to do a little searching to find them. This web page will make that search a little easier.

I encourage you to first REVIEW THIS LIST and then to TRY DIFFERENT NEWS SOURCES. Some are better than others and some may fit your schedule better than others. Try something new as well as your normal news sources.

Radio Programs (WEBZ 91.5 FM)

I listen to public radio (WBEZ 91.5 or WNIJ 89.5) while commuting to and from work. Some of the news that you will hear is also available online from National Public Radio or from WBEZ radio, Chicago. Here is a schedule of the best sources of international news on public radio in the Chicago area. Worldview, The World, and the BBC programs contain almost 100% international news. Morning Edition and All Things Considered contain some international news.
