Daily Mail

According to The Guardian, the MailOnline is planning to extend its global reach, opening offices in Toronto, Delhi and Sydney. At present the Daily Mail’s website has 40 journalists based in the UK, 20 in New York who report on US news, and 10 show biz journalists in Los Angeles.

British tabloid The Daily Mail is broadening its online presence with the introduction of Mail Online India, reports Roy Greenslade in The Guardian today.

The new page is integrated into Mail's UK website, but contains content from Mail Today, a publication launched by the Daily Mail's parent company Daily Mail & General Trust together with the India Today Group in November 2007.

Mail Online India features Mail Today's logo on its banner, but it also reproduces large amounts of content from its British counterpart; the 'Femail' section, for example, is identical on both sites' home pages.

Greenslade writes that the new page is a "natural move for the Mail's ultimate owner" DMGT, considering its investment in the Mail Today. In fact, as Greenslade acknowledges, that investment is not so large. Indian law places restrictions on foreign media ownership and DMGT has only a 26% stake in the Dehli-based paper. But despite this relatively small share, Greenslade notes that in DMGT's annual report, published last week, the media group has promised to use its relationship with partners as a "foundation to extend Mailonline's presence in the market".
