NZME. News Service

NZME. News Service helps you make contact with our journalists. It’s about providing relevant information fast - a victory for substance over style.


NZME. News Service supplies NZME.’s daily, Sunday and community papers in print, digital and mobile.


NZME. News Service (formerly APNZ) was set up following the closure of NZPA, a source of news and information to New Zealand for more than 130 years. It has three major roles:

  • to generate exclusive copy
  • to share copy generated by subscribers
  • to help provide a coordinated response to breaking news events

NZME’s independent partners are the Otago Daily Times, Ashburton Guardian, Oamaru Mail, Gisborne Herald, Greymouth Star, Westport News, and their associated community titles.
