News on News was founded in the summer of 2008 as World Business News, a news and commentary blog about the media's coverage of markets and financial news.
Closely monitoring the financial broadcasters and print media, World Business News grew steadily, and began to offer coverage of the developing financial crisis.
Popularity of World Business News came to the fore when Lehman Brothers collapsed in September 2008, with an emphasis of coverage on how the media covered the events.
With a renewed emphasis on the niche of media coverage of breaking news events, World Business News, broadened it's scope to include cable news outlets and mainstream broadcast news bulletins.
Into 2009, World Business News rebranded as News on News to better reflect the broader remit the site now covered, with commentary on the mainstream media's news and current affairs output from around the world.
