It's with great pleasure that we welcome Nikolas Gvosdev to WPR as a regular weekly columnist. As the former editor of the National Interest and a frequent commentator in both the print and broadcast media, Gvosdev is a well-known and well-respected foreign policy voice. We believe his approach to geopolitics, combining sharp-eyed realism with insightful and thought-provoking lines of examination, is a great fit for WPR. Beginning next week, his column will appear every Friday.
We'd also like to take this opportunity to provide a brief overview of some of the changes we've made recently here at WPR. As you've probably noticed, the past year has been a process of refinement for us, and although we expect that process to be an ongoing one, the foundations of our daily publication and subscription service are now in place. First and foremost, they are designed to fulfill our editorial mission of providing in-depth, non-partisan and useful analysis for both professionals -- whether in government or the private sector -- and serious students of foreign policy and international affairs.
In the last few months we've launched our premium subscription service to complement our free daily publication. Our daily content comes in the form of our briefings, regular columnists and blog -- all of which go beyond the news cycle to offer insight and context for developments of regional and global importance. In addition to our original articles and blogs, we regularly aggregate news, analysis and opinion from other sources in our daily Media Roundup and in our video and audio sections. (Our blogs, Media Roundup and multimedia archives are freely available. Beginning next week, our briefings will go behind our pay wall two weeks after publication, and our columns one week after publication.)
