WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BorderNewsNetwork.com, the only online news source dedicated to covering all matters related to borders and border security, launched on March 12 with over 30 correspondents around the world. In just 30 days, the site logged visitors from 100 countries on six continents and continues to grow.
“In just our first 30 days our correspondents have covered artillery exchanges between North and South Korea, a wave of cross-border Boko Haram terror in northern Nigeria, the capture of Iranian border guards on the border with Pakistan and cross-Mediterranean waves of immigration into Europe,” said David Silverberg, editor-in-chief. “We’ve featured analyses of border issues from Washington DC and Mexico City, Moscow and Kiev. We’ve also featured expert op-eds and interviews with top border security officials, including Mark Borkowski, assistant commissioner, Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition for US Customs and Border Protection – and we’re just getting started.”
“Our dedicated correspondents around the globe are invaluable to BorderNewsNetwork.com’s growth and success as we continue to serve the news and informational needs of border security and law enforcement agencies on six continents,” said Paul Mackler, President & CEO of Eagle Eye Expositions, and the publisher of Border News Network. “It is extremely gratifying to be read in 100 countries within our first 30 days of operation and that motivates us to intensify our work for this important segment of news.”
