WorldLink: Linking global voices behind the headlines... Deutsche Welle's news magazine with updated weekly reporting examines international news through a personal lens with engaging, sound-rich reporting and compelling interviews. WorldLink foregoes breaking news coverage and analysis, moving directly to the impact of the news by going to the source of the story to find the people whose lives have been changed by today's events.

Global events change lives and at WorldLink our coverage is seen through the eyes of those experiencing the news by reporting on the personal stories behind the headlines each week. Whether tragedy or triumph - the human stories are the ones that engage your listeners. Deutsche Welle's WorldLink provides a personal perspective on the events shaping the globe.

WorldLink brings you 54 jammed-packed minutes of personal tales from around the world - looking at the people behind the current affairs headlines.

PRX SubAuto version of WorldLink is a 53-minute version for NPR stations who wish to insert an NPR newscast, and also includes a 59-second billboard.
