Newslines was founded by Mark & Mary Devlin, who are from Glasgow, Scotland. After moving to Japan in 1989, Mark & Mary founded Japan’s No 1 English magazine, Metropolis, in 1993. In 2000 they founded japantoday.com, the world’s largest news site about Japan in English. They sold their businesses in Japan in 2007, and after spending eight years in the U.S. and 26 years overseas in total, they returned to Scotland in 2016. Click here to read their newsline.
