The Associated Press introduced the AP Hosted State News Online service at the Newspaper Association of America’s Connections 2004 conference in San Diego this week.
The turnkey plug-in service includes headlines and stories from AP state reports on politics, government, business, sports, education and more. The AP said it will host and refresh the online pages, saving time and resources for newspaper Web sites.
AP member newspapers can customize the hosted pages to include their own navigation and advertising.
State News Online is the latest hosted service from the AP, which also offers Hosted CustomNews (multimedia), Hosted Elections Online, Financial Tools, Multimedia Features Online and Hosted Video Gallery. New services slated for later this year include Entertainment, Megasports, Olympics and Spanish-language.
The AP provides a full news report for each state in the country.
