PRESS ASSOCIATION

The Press Association of New Zealand, a cooperative of 41 newspapers, runs a highly efficient teleprinter network through which news is transmitted simultaneously to 37 of its members. Each member supplies to the cooperative all local news of national interest for retransmission to other members. Hence the association need employ a staff of only 25, including three full-time overseas correspondents.

Co-creator
