On the eve of a month’s worth of the beautiful game, here’s a quick look at some of the journalists covering the World Cup in Brazil.
This list, (with links to each org’s hub), and my Twitter list is just getting started, so if your news organization is there or I missed someone (I definitely missed someone), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet at me @kristenhare, and I’ll add you to the list.
The AP has a lot of people ready to cover each of the 64 matches in Brazil (there are 44 members on the Twitter list.) Here are some tweets from just a few of them.
Watching the #nbafinals in Portuguese. Not hard to understand. "Tony Parker, Bingo!"

At the Rio airport, travelers are not greeted with World Cup signs or soccer-related ads. Supermodels say hi first. pic.twitter.com/LXXEN1TN5j
