English Language Media in Bulgaria: F&F Magazine and The Sofia Globe Consolidating

Written by on March 6, 2017 in Bulgaria, Latest - No comments
Two English-language publications, F&F Magazine (foreignersandfriends.com) and The Sofia Globe (sofiaglobe.com), will consolidate, the editors behind both media said. The two websites, both of which were founded and are run by expats living in Sofia, will become The Sofia Globe. 
 
F&F Magazine’s founder and editor-in-chief Imanuel Marcus said the joining of forces was about creating a synergy effect as well as intensifying a cooperation which already existed. “We will be stronger than before”, he stated. “And we will be the only serious, independent English language news and features publication in Bulgaria.” 
 
But that is not all. With this step, The Sofia Globe will have a German section as well. “We will publish the daily top stories in German, and a lot more”, said Marcus, a German native, who will be responsible. “There is a lot of interest in reports on Bulgaria in German”, he said.
 
The Sofia Globe was founded almost five years ago by veteran journalist Clive Leviev-Sawyer. He said, “We at the Globe have been working very well on an informal basis for many months with Imanuel and foreignersandfriends.com (…) and it was clear the time had come to strengthen that co-operation”.
 
Not only will the new Sofia Globe add manpower and a new language, but also additional categories and subjects. Expats in Bulgaria and Bulgarian expats abroad will be covered more. The same applies to leisure and entertainment as well as culture.
 
The technical implementation of the plan will take effect within a few days. From that moment onward, anyone trying to access F&F Magazine will be forwarded to the Sofia Globe automatically.
