News Service establishes partnership with Trice Edney News Wire
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
"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.
