DW’s Bogotá office increases objective news coverage in Latin America
With its new correspondents’ office in Bogotá, Colombia, DW will expand its coverage of important news and issues affecting countries across Latin and South America. The new office comes as DW’s television audience grows in the region along with DW’s Spanish-language online content generating more page views.
DW’s reporting in Latin America can offer unique coverage of issues that are not often discussed in local media such as state corruption or the oppression of indigenous peoples. As Colombia starts to find its way out of an ongoing civil conflict, DW can provide comprehensive and objective coverage of the peace process.
Along with Colombia, DW’s Bogotá correspondents will be providing coverage of news and events from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. The office will be run by Ofelia Harms, a DW journalist from Mexico, who is a former DW trainee.
The president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, welcomed DW in a Twitter post and wished DW success with its work.
DW’s Bogotá office builds on DW’s partner-based strategy in Latin America and will contribute to its continued success. There are currently over 800 DW partners across Latin America that carry and rebroadcast DW’s news and entertainment content.
