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.

"Kick-Six" leads to victory


   ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Penn State's Carl Nassib is the Big Ten's defensive player of the year in a vote of coaches and media.
   Nassib leads the nation with 15 1/2 sacks and six forced fumbles. The 6-foot-7, 272-pound senior from West Chester, Pennsylvania, started his career at Penn State as a walk-on.
   Other award winners: Joey Bosa, Ohio State, defensive lineman of the year; Joe Schobert, Wisconsin, linebacker of the year; Desmond King, Iowa, defensive back of the year; Griffin Oakes, Indiana, kicker of the year; Sam Foltz, Nebraska, punter of the year; Will Likely, Maryland, return specialist of the year; Jabrill Peppers, Michigan, freshman of the year.
   The Big Ten announced only its defensive honorees Monday. The offensive award winners will be announced Tuesday.

   CINCINNATI (AP) - Jeremy Hill gave the Bengals a glimpse of the only thing they've been missing on offense.
   The second-year running back had his best showing of the season on Sunday during a 31-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams. He ran for 86 yards and could have reached 100 if he hadn't twisted his left ankle in the fourth quarter.
   It was a breakthrough for Hill, whose previous high this season was 63 yards.
   The Bengals (9-2) emerged from a two-game slide and reasserted themselves atop the AFC North. With Pittsburgh's loss at Seattle, the Bengals lead the division by three games over the Steelers (6-5).
   They could clinch their second division title in three years when the Steelers visit on Dec. 13.

   MIAMI (AP) - Another entertainer is joining Jay-Z in the sports agent business - singer Marc Anthony.

   Chapman is the hardest throwing pitcher in the major leagues. He is eligible for free agency after the 2016 World Series.
   Jay-Z, whose given name is Shawn Carter, is partners with CAA Sports in Roc Nation Sports. It signed Robinson Cano as its first baseball client in 2013.
