The New York Times is headed north and down under. According to Politico, the Times is targeting Canada and Australia as the next places for expansion.
The Times is already in the early stages of hiring local reporters for the two new papers, which will no doubt draw some side-eyes from existing companies.
Canada has several large papers, but the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail are the most-widely read. In Australia the competition is a little less intense, with Melbourne’s Herald Sun as the only paper with more than 500,000 subscribers.
