Vice Media is to expand its news channel to seven new countries including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Mexico, Brazil and Australia.
The New York-based digital media company is to launch local-language editions and newsrooms in each of the new countries, in a rapid rollout since launching in the US and UK in March this year.
Each of the new editions of Vice News will feature in-depth video and editorial content as well as utilising Vine, Instagram and live-streaming from major events.
“Vice News will continue to build on its success in covering the stories that often go overlooked by legacy news outlets,” the company said. “And though the channel won’t chase the traditional news-cycle, Vice News will report from the centre of the breaking stories that matter most to its audience.”
