NBC News staked a new flag in the blogosphere today. World Blog aims "to provide a dynamic look at world events and trends -- both big and small -- from NBC News correspondents, producers, and bureaus around the world." So far, launch day features posts from Baghdad, Bangkok, Beijing, Ethiopia and Germany, with more to come from Cuba. World Blog replaces Blogging Baghdad, but the editor tells me that she expects frequent posts from Richard Engel and the rest of the NBC News team in Baghdad. So those of you who loved Blogging Baghdad, don't despair. News from Iraq will be a major portion of World Blog.
I'll link here in The Daily Nightly to posts that touch on topics reported by Nightly News and I'll add a perma-link shortly in the boxes to the right, but for now, just remember WorldBlog.MSNBC.com.
