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.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer says he's never felt worse after a loss in his career and understands that criticism "comes with the territory."

His shaky performance sparked buzz among some fans and analysts that popular rookie backup Johnny Manziel should take over.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - In college football, for Number 13 Ohio State to keep its winning streak going, the Buckeyes must find a way to hurry Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg. They certainly did that a year ago, sacking him four times and intercepting him twice in a stunningly one-sided 63-14 victory over the then-freshman. The teams meet again on Saturday night before a sellout crowd at Beaver Stadium.
