LA Times Debuts New Blog ‘World Now’

The LA Times‘ debuted a new blog this afternoon: “World Now.” Like “LA Now” is for local politics, the site will be the main online repository for the paper’s international coverage.

From The Times:

The new report contains breaking news from around the globe, as well as other stories from The Times‘ foreign correspondents and staff writers in the U.S. covering issues of international significance.

At first glance we see the site contains a rather cool interactive map that allows you to see the paper’s various bureaus across the world. You can click on the map to get the stories from the region of your choice. We likes.

It also looks like there’s been some restructuring to make room for “World Now.” The Times‘ Latin America blog “La Plaza” will be no more. It’s being folded into the larger site.
