LONDON, UK (ANS – December 16, 2016) – Peter Wooding, the younger son of Norma and myself, has been appointed London Bureau Chief for the newly-formed Global News Alliance (GNA).
This was announced today (Friday, December 16, 2016) by Stan Jeter, founding producer for Christian World News on CBN, and creator of the Global News Alliance, which will have its formal launch next March 2nd at the NRB Convention in Orlando, Florida.
Jeter said, “We now have a London GNA News Bureau! Veteran journalist Peter Wooding has accepted the assignment as Bureau Chief, working part-time as we get started.
“Peter has already uploaded several stories to our Global News Alliance web portal, including an interview with Baroness Caroline Cox on persecution of Christians in Nigeria, and reports on feeding Syrian refugees in northern Iraq.
“London is the first of several regional bureaus planned for 2017. Our goal is to provide Christian news stories not otherwise available to Christian broadcasters. Please stay tuned and keep us in your prayers!”
