Why does Metro operate the way it does?
Metro News is a news wire agency providing services similar to AP & UPI.
Metro offers news reporting, writing and photojournalism services to various news agencies in the United States and some foreign countries.
Frequently, our stories, photos, videos and audio sound bytes can be found via various affiliate websites, on select local radio and television stations and in publications primarily in the US, but from time-to-time also in other countries. But, the best place to find everything we do is here on our website.
It's impossible for news agencies to cover ever story or event that's happening on a local or national basis. That's where MNN steps in and fills the gap. We have local affiliates that cover news, package it and send it to your local news station or newspaper where it's then delivered to you.
There are several ways we learn about stories and events and get the information to you in a timely manner. Sometimes we are dispatched by an assignment editor of a local TV or radio station. We accept assignments from newspaper and magazine editors. And mostly, we pay attention to stories that other agencies are reporting. Our local newsrooms monitor police and fire scanners and we constantly visit news sources to get the most accurate and up-to-date info possible.
Metro News was founded as a newspaper delivery company and eventually evolved into the news service it is today. We believe it is your absolute right to be informed and know what is happening in your world and when you want to know about it. We don't shy away from the truth and aren't ashamed to report stories accurately without bias or prejudice.
