Our story
For 170 years, we have been breaking news and covering the world’s biggest stories, always committed to the highest standards of objective, accurate journalism. We were founded as an independent news cooperative, whose members are U.S. newspapers and broadcasters, steadfast in our mission to inform the world. From delivering the news via pony express in 1846 to working in virtual reality today, we are always innovating. 
Who we are
Our people
We are a proudly independent group of media professionals and business innovators, guided by a leadership team devoted to shaping the future of journalism. Every day, our people work toward our mission of informing the world.
Our causes
We have been leading the media industry ever since our founding in 1846, championing journalism across the globe. In 2005, we established the AP Emergency Relief Fund to help our colleagues around the world when they are affected by conflict and disaster. The money we've raised has rebuilt their homes, replaced their destroyed belongings and moved their families to safe houses.
