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.
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is back on the practice field following his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Bryant was cleared to return after last Thursday's 23-20 loss to Baltimore. The second-year receiver spent three weeks getting counseling in Houston at a facility operated by former NBA player and coach John Lucas.
Bryant says he learned from his mistakes and has a better understanding on how to avoid them in the future.
The Steelers (2-2) have a week to get ready for a trip to San Diego. Bryant's presence should help an offense that had trouble getting downfield against the Ravens. Bryant averaged 21 yards a catch during his rookie season, scoring eight touchdowns in 10 games.
CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers took the court at Quicken Loans Arena on Monday night for the first time since losing Game 6 of the NBA Finals in June.
The Cavs held their annual Wine and Gold scrimmage, and James, as he often does, got the crowd of 14,480 going with a trademark dunk. He scored six points in 12 minutes.
James called it "a great turnout," and said it was "unbelievable" that so many fans turned out on a Monday night.
