By: Press Release | The Associated Press

Responding to positive feedback in the current Major League Baseball season, The Associated Press will expand an initiative aimed at member news organizations by offering them optional leads on all NFL and college football post-game stories that will focus on the losing teams.

As with baseball, these leads will be filed in addition to the regular top that highlights the winning team.

The expansion of AP’s “Hometown Leads,” an initiative of special value to newspapers that do not staff away games, was announced today at the annual convention of Associated Press Sports Editors in Boston.
