Tim Currie wrote for us last year about the challenges facing several national wire services, who between industry consolidation and Internet distribution have seen their business models put into flux. The latest jolt comes from Australia:

APN News & Media has ended its subscription to Australian Associated Press wire services and will develop its own network. The company would invest more deeply in developing local news services, editorial director Shane Rodgers told PANPA.

APN owns a couple dozen Australian newspapers and other publications. AAP’s editor-in-chief says he doesn’t think this is the beginning of a larger move.
