NNPA News Service establishes partnership with Trice Edney News Wire

(December 19, 2016) The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), a national trade association of more than 211 Black-owned newspapers, has become the chief subscriber of the six-year-old Trice Edney News Wire in a partnership that aims to strengthen the editorial capabilities of Black newspapers across the country.

"Toward the fulfillment of the strategic objective of significantly increasing the original content distributed by the NNPA News Wire Service for use by our member publishers across the nation, we are pleased to align and subscribe to the Trice Edney News Wire," said NNPA President/CEO Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. "This arrangement will provide a timely additional benefit to the NNPA.

Through the subscribership, all NNPA member newspapers will have a full one-year access to the Trice Edney News Wire, which is offered in seven categories -- lead stories, columns, education, Black health, business/economics, international, and lifestyles/entertainment. The arrangement also gives access to exclusive Trice Edney columnists, including activist Dr. E. Faye Williams; political scientist Dr. Wilmer Leon; journalist A. Peter Bailey; and health columnist Glenn Ellis.

Starting December 19, 2016, the Trice Edney News Wire link and login information will be made available in the NNPA News Service member-only section.

"I am honored that the leadership of NNPA has decided to subscribe to the Trice Edney News Wire on behalf of all of its member newspapers," said Hazel Trice Edney (pictured), an award-winning 30-year veteran of the Black Press. "We at the Trice Edney News Wire look forward to serving NNPA under our mantra -- 'provocative, empowering, unapologetically Black' -- by adding to their already powerful daily and weekly offerings of news and commentary."

"Hazel Trice Edney is not a stranger to the NNPA and we welcome once again the opportunity to work with her in a joint venture that will enhance content offerings for NNPA publishers and editors," said NNPA Chair Denise Rolark Barnes.

An award-winning veteran journalist, Hazel Trice Edney is president, CEO and editor-in-chief of Trice Edney Communications, now in its sixth year. She is former Editor-in-Chief of the National Newspaper Publishers Association News Service and, and former interim executive director of the NNPA Foundation.

As an adjunct professor of journalism at Howard University, Edney teaches Reporting & Writing, Writing for the Media and the freshman seminar class of Annenberg honor students.

Edney has a Masters Degree from the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government, where she was awarded the William S. Wasserman Jr. Fellowship on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. She is also a graduate of Harvard's KSG Women and Power Executive Leadership program.
