Title: Japan Herald


Mission: Japan Herald was conceived in September 2002 to provide national and international news as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Japan Herald, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the nation and the region. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Japan Herald and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.
