Useful Press & Media Links
This section features links to various news and media outlets around the world. Many of these can help you get news, weather and other information from both international and local sources to help you travel safer in unfamiliar regions.

Other links that are available in this section include the following:

  • Governmental links are those sites that are produced and sponsored by various government authorities. These are useful for emergency assistance for travelers.

  • NGO links are those hosted by non-governmental organizations. These may be helpful in emergency situations.

  • Dates & Holidays lists notable dates, anniversaries, national and religious holidays as well as commemorations and celebrations in dozens of countries around the world. These are helpful for travel planning and keeping safe while on the road.

  • Road Conditions features links to road and highway conditions and provides emergency travel advisories for all 50 US states and 10 Canadian provinces based on information provided by their respective Departments of Transportation.

  • Calculations provides links to useful calculations relating to health, safety, medical and travel issues.

Please note that these sites are not affiliated with, and remain third-party to, or related organizations. By using these links you agree to our Terms of Service. You must have Java turned on to use these sites. Each link opens a new window and keeps this one active in the background.

Here are some media and print services (sorted in alphabetical order by originating country). Please note that outlets named after their broadcast frequencies are sorted as if they were spelled out in full. American media outlets are sorted under "U" for "United States". Likewise, British media outlets are sorted under "United Kingdom". Not every station, newspaper, news service or outlet is listed, but the following will prove useful for anyone who wants to find out the current situation in a specific region from a local source.

Please remember that many countries around the world do not have a completely independent press. In some regions, the government, the opposition forces, military leaders, oligarchs and others may exert undue control over the news. Like everything else you read or hear, verify all information before acting on it. Your life may depend on it.
