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.

Reds Hire Former D-backs Big Wig

 CINCINNATI (AP) - The Reds hired former Arizona general manager Kevin Towers as a special assistant for player personnel on Tuesday.
 
   Towers spent the last four years as general manager of the Diamondbacks. He also was general manager of the Padres from 1996-2009.
 
   He replaces Bob Miller, who spent nine seasons with the Reds, most recently as vice president and assistant general manager to Walt Jocketty. Miller was hired by the Nationals as assistant general manager earlier this month.

Ralph Wilson Stadium Hot to Trot

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon expects Ralph Wilson Stadium to be "100 percent operational" in time to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
 
   Brandon provided the update Tuesday after a tour of the stadium uncovered some minor damage from a severe lake-effect storm that dumped more than 6 feet of snow on the Buffalo region last week.
 
   The problems ranged from burst pipes, to leakage to parts of the wall separating the field from the stands being damaged during the snow-removal process. A portion of the wall of the Bills' practice facility caved in, but has already been repaired.
 
   Brandon says engineers found no structural issues to the stadium itself.
 
   The Bills (6-5) beat the New York Jets 38-3 in a "home" game at Detroit on Monday night.

LeBron Partially Deodorizes as Cavs Roll

CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James scored 29 points, including 16 in the first quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke a four-game losing streak with a 106-74 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
 
   After bluntly assessing his own play at Monday's shootaround, saying, "I stink," James took control early and sparked his team to a much-needed comfortable win.
 
   After averaging 18.5 points and shooting 41 percent from the field in the losing streak, James was 9 for 17 from the field Monday and tied a season-high with 11 assists while not playing the fourth quarter.
 
   James hit four shots from the field, including a 3-pointer, made all seven of his free throws and had four assists in the opening period. He finished the first half with 22 points, including a fadeaway jumper from the top of the key to end the second quarter.
 
   Anderson Varejao scored 14 points while Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving each added 12.
