The truth is often far more complex than a punchy headline or a social media post. That is why I want to provide DW’s global audience with a broader perspective on the events shaping our world today.
The news, for me, starts and ends with people. The more we try to understand each other, the more we can try and understand what’s happening around us.
Lara Babalola is the new host of Focus on Europe. She grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada where she studied theatre. In 2009, she moved to Berlin before beginning her career at DW as an anchor and reporter.
I come from a country where journalism acts as a foundation for mass public opinion. Such power demands responsibility and I am always careful to tell and approach every story with nuance and context.
