The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories.
AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day.
As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.
With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.
CINCINNATI (AP) - In college football, Cincinnati has suspended backup quarterback Jarred Evans indefinitely after he was arrested over the weekend on a misdemeanor assault charge. Coach Tommy Tuberville says the junior college transfer won't be allowed to associate with the team until his case is settled.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Bradley Beal caused a bit of a stir on Washington Wizards media day when he proclaimed: "I think we're definitely the best backcourt in the league." Less well-documented was the second half of his statement: "At the same time, we've got to prove it." The Wizards were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs last season, so the next step would be the conference finals. It's a distinct possibility given that LeBron James' return to the Cleveland Cavaliers has left with the East without a clear-cut favorite.
