Associated Press

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.

   TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The University of Toledo's president is stepping down at the end of this month, moving up his planned departure by one year.
   Lloyd Jacobs announced Friday that he will leave his post at the end of June. He had said in March that he was planning to step down at the end of June 2015.
   Jacobs says he is changing his departure date after being asked to work with a global economic development organization that's based in Washington, D.C.
   He has been at the university the past eight years and before that led the former Medical University of Ohio in Toledo.
