Important News Agencies of the World

»News agencies were created with a single aim to enrich the newspapers with a wide variety of news events happening around the world. Initially the agencies were meant to provide the news items only to the newspapers but with the passage of time, the rapidly developing modern mediums such as the radio, television and Internet too adapted the services of news agencies.

»Founded in 1846, The Associated Press (or AP) is the first news agency in the world. It was founded in New York, the United States of America as a not-for-profit news agency.
»The Associated Press was challenged by the creation of United Press Associations (now United Press International) in 1907 by William Randolph Hearst.
»In 1851 Reuters was founded in England.
»In 1944 Agence France-Presse (or AFP) was founded, making it the third-biggest news agency after AP and Reuters.
»With the advent of communism in Russia, Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union (or TASS) was founded in 1925.
»Xinhua was later founded as Red China News Services in the Chinese Soviet Republic.
