Globes (Hebrew: גלובס) is a Hebrew-language daily evening financial newspaper in Israel. Globes was founded in the early 1980s and published in Tel Aviv, Israel. It deals with economic issues and news from the Israeli and international business worlds. The paper is printed on salmon-colored paper, inspired by the British Financial Times.

Globes was one of the first Israeli dailies to publish its contents on the World Wide Web, dating back to April 1995.[1] Its web version publishes in Hebrew and English.

According to TGI 2022 media survey, Globes' market share is 4.1% among Israeli financial newspapers.[2] Its main competitors as Israeli financial newspapers in printed media are TheMarker, of the Haaretz group, and Calcalist, published by the Yedioth Ahronoth Group.

History[edit]

The daily paper founded by Haim Bar-On, the publisher of the newspaper, on the basis of a small, Haifa-based financial newspaper, in partnership with businessman Eliezer Fishman.

Following the success of Globes, it had a competitor in the form of Telegraph, which had a lower subscription price and was also printed on Saturday. Telegraph was closed after several years. A few years later, the Schocken Media Network published TheMarker economic newspaper as a competitor to Globes.

The chief editor of Globes is Naama Sikuler.[3] Among the regular contributors to the newspaper are Yoav Karni, Tal Schneider, Eli Tsipori, Matti Golan, Naomi Cohen, Stella Korin-Lieber, and Dror Foer.
