PA corporate information including our history and shareholders

“It’s on PA”

Three simple words that sum up the currency and credibility of the PA brand.

Since 1868, when the Press Association was conceived as a London-based news gathering service for the provincial papers, the words
shouted across a newsroom have acted as a catalyst for action when a story breaks. We are trusted because we are fast, fair and accurate.

Today, much of the content people read, see or hear continues to originate from PA. We enable brands  including national and regional newspapers,
magazines, broadcasters, digital owners, businesses and public sector organisations
to tell their own stories by providing products and services which
span our newswire, images, video, hosted live blogs, social media content, page production services, TV listings and more.
