The Deutsche Welle (translated: German Wave) is Germany's international news broadcaster and has news in 30 languages, including English and German, as well as podcasts, German spoken s-l-o-w-l-y (langsam gesprochene Nachrichten), and resources for learning German.
Be sure to check out their Media Center for video, audio, pictures, and podcasts. Remember to listen to a segment repeatedly--you will understand it better if you listen to it more than once or twice!!
The Deutsche Welle used to have a newsletter that you could receive regularly with short news items; I used it for practicing my German at the beginning, much like I use German magazines now for practice. This is a very reliable, solid resource for you. Use it!
