What Is A Newswire?
News agencies operate globally and are news wholesalers; providing accurate, reliable and objective news stories for syndication across news outlets.

Newswires are the life blood of the media industry; delivering thousands of stories, images, videos and graphics 24/7 to newsrooms and are a primary source of content for journalists. In a ready-to-publish format, newswire stories can be published direct or form the basis for new stories.
A Brief History Of Newswires
News agencies and journalists alike have relied upon newswires as a breaking news source since the 1800s.

From humble transmission via telegraph wires, journalists nowadays, rely on internet or satellite access to breaking news stories.  
  • 1830s: Telegraph becomes mainstream and enables fast speed transmission of information; giving birth to the Newswire
  • 1835: Paris' Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency is founded and one of the oldest Newswires is born
  • 1846: Associated Press news agency is founded 
  • 1851: Reuters news agency in London is founded 
  • 1935: Australian Associated Press (AAP) is established to bring overseas news into Australia and the AAP Newswire is established
  • Present Day: Newswires are still a key information source for newsrooms, with 98% of the Australian media subscribing to the AAP Newswire for breaking news and content
