BBC, Deutsche Welle, Radio France Internationale, South China Morning Post (from Hong Kong), Asahi Shimbun. They all have an English edition. I recommend you balance your diet of US-based journalism (which can be very similar in some significant ways even if they come from different perspectives) with reporting from abroad. You learn completely different things.

Also, TV news tends to be at a lower level than print journalism. If you transcribe what TV news anchors or talking heads say, you'll discover what sounds good live is actually really poorly thought out stuff.
