Our Man in Brazil goes live

January 20th, 2009 went online a little earlier than anticipated, aiming to provide independent coverage and insight on Brazilian news, political, economic, business, cultural and sporting events to an overseas audience.

The opportunity to explain the background to Brazil’s relationship with the United States was just too good to miss on the day America’s first black president is sworn in.

Ourmaninbrazil will initially focus on written journalism, with audio and video content intended for a later stage.

Brazilian Correspondent and Editor John Evans has a wide range of reporting experience, previously providing election and economic updates for ‘The Business’ newspaper in London,  from Brazil.

The fluent French, Portuguese and Spanish-speaking journalist’s freelance work includes reporting on landless issues for the Associated Press news agency, water rationing, tax reform, and the effects of the Iraq War on Brazil at the Canal de São Paulo community TV channel.

Trained as a broadcast journalist, Evans gained experience as an assistant news producer at Five News (ITN) before working as Reporter/News Producer covering consumer affairs and personal finance issues for Simply Money TV in London.

In a previous spell in Brazil, Evans covered business issues for the English edition of the Gazeta Mercantil newspaper and worked as freelance Reporter/Producer for the Canal de São Paulo TV station.

In addition to contributing to The Daily Telegraph’s World Cup football qualifying coverage, Evans also covered Brazilian auto industry developments in Brazil for Automotive News.

After a spell in London reporting on European business issues, Evans, a student of international relations in Latin America at São Paulo’s renowned PUC University, returned to São Paulo in 2008 from where he reports on the metals business in the Americas.
