One of the oldest wire services, Associated Press formed in 1848; it is now possibly the largest wire service in the world. AP reports are used frequently by smaller American newspapers to save on costs, as they don't have to pay staff. Even many larger newspapers use their reports frequently for both international and national coverage.
