BuzzFeed Adding Foreign News Coverage

BuzzFeed is branching out. Again. The New York Times reports that the site is taking steps to add foreign coverage by adding a Washington-based foreign editor and six reporters under him or her. Two of those staffers will likely be stationed in Cairo and Mexico City.

Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief, told the Times that the push for foreign reporting was inspired by readers’ reaction to BuzzFeed’s Boston Marathon coverage. “Now we have an audience that wants to learn what’s going on in the world,” he explained.

With this expansion, it’s only a matter of time before BuzzFeed has a section for everything. Think Huffington Post, only less sideboob. For now.
