Brussels Signal aims to diversify the media landscape, offering a platform for a broad spectrum of perspectives on EU policies. As the European Union grapples with internal divisions and external challenges like the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, energy security issues, and migration, the platform is positioned to add to the discourse surrounding these developments.
Michael Mosbacher, known for his roles in the launch of UK-based Standpoint and The Critic, is the Editor-in-Chief of Brussels Signal. Justin Stares, a Brussels-based journalist and founder of The Maritime Watch, will be serving as senior editor for news.
The outlet has announced plans to provide a variety of content including regular commentaries, newsletters, podcasts, and video content, with contributors ranging from established names to emerging voices in journalism.
The launch of Brussels Signal comes at a time of considerable consolidation in the news industry, leading to concerns about diminishing diversity in news perspectives. In this context, the platform may contribute to media pluralism within the EU landscape.
Patrick Egan, CEO of Remedia Europe and publisher of Brussels Signal, expressed his intention to seize what he sees as an opportunity in the current media environment with the launch of this platform. The sustainability of the news brand as a business, and its influence on the conversation at the European level, are yet to be seen.
Remedia Europe SRL is a subsidiary of the Hungarian company Remedia Corp Kft.
Remedia Europe invites the public to visit the Brussels Signal website on June 6th for its inaugural coverage of EU affairs.
