Army News Service

Army News Service - Since 1943, ARNEWS has been the Army's premier print wire service with the daily mission of telling the service's story to its internal audiences worldwide. The general public is also a tertiary audience that can now view articles on Army.mil. But the target audience remains the 6 million Soldiers, Family members, retirees, reserve-component troops, civilian employees and contractors worldwide who traditionally read the stories in their command newspapers. AFN stations historically have used ARNEWS articles as readers on their radio newscasts and for story ideas on the TV news. Now ARNEWS partners with Soldiers Magazine and SRTV on a daily basis to provide synergy on covering Army-wide news. ARNEWS reporters focus on covering strategic communications initiatives at Department of the Army headquarters. This includes new policy, pay and benefits, new equipment and new programs emphasized by Army leadership. Coverage of major operations and exercises is primarily based on submissions from the field.
