Founded in 1976, the World Journal is the most influential Chinese-language newspaper in North America. One of the few U.S. daily newspapers distributed on a national basis, the World Journal is published in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Vancouver and Toronto and distributed throughout North America. The World Journal has become a vital part of the everyday lives of Chinese Americans/Chinese Canadians with a loyal following of readers from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. The World Journal has recognized the rapid growth and changing demographic profile of Chinese immigrants and responded to their changing needs through continuous advancements in content, technology and service. Its team of professionally trained reporters and editors produce several local editions to address local issues and events while maintaining the scope and depth of its coverage as a national paper.
