News organizations such as those that provide you with your television evening or morning news, or those that print your daily newspaper, do not use reporters for all of their news stories. Particularly not the global stories that appear in your local news sources. Those world news stories come from news wire services that report from all over.
Once the news wire services get a breaking story, they submit their information to the news organizations, like the one that you read every day. This information is the most up to date, current news that the world has seen. No one has reported on it yet, because it has just happened. That is the big difference between a news wire service and the news organization that reports every evening during supper. The wire service reports the latest news, in little chunks of information, to your news providers.
There are tons of different news wire services out there, some all encompassing, such as a global news wire, or some can be incredibly specific, focusing on one single topic. Some examples of such would be the country specific Canadian news wire, city specific Rome news wire, a topic specific Christian news wire, or even an economic specific Dow Jones news wire. Each one provides the most up to date and current news and events pertaining to its particular subject.
The Canadian news wire, like any of the others, is not limited to just Canada. While many Canadian news organizations do get their news from that service, other parts of the world can be subscribed to the Canadian news wire as well, keeping their global news up to date. News wires are the first line of information in our consumption of any news. It is the news organizations who wrap it all up in a pretty package to make our news consumption more enjoyable and informative.
