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.
DETROIT (AP) - Mid-American Conference Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher is calling for some limits on when and where football satellite camps can be held.
Steinbrecher suggested a 15-day window to hold the camps and a requirement that they take place on the ground of another four-year college. Steinbrecher spoke Thursday at the MAC's annual media day at Ford Field in Detroit.
Satellite camps have become a big issue over the past year. The Southeastern Conference wanted them banned, with some coaches arguing that it was just a way for programs to recruit.
The Division One Council approved a proposal requiring Football Bowl Subdivision schools to hold camps at or near home, but the Division I Board of Directors rescinded the ban in early May.
