World News is a category of journalism in which reporters explore global issues and events. This field is sometimes referred to as international news or foreign news, and it can be considered one of the subfields of journalism that deals with local or national news (such as war reporting).
A world news reporter might specialize in a particular subject such as politics, economy, business, science and technology. The reporter might also focus on a region or country, and often reports to a news editor at a newspaper or magazine. World news may be reported by a full-time foreign correspondent, who is stationed in a specific city, or a special envoy, a freelancer sent to a particular location for a limited amount of time.
