About NZPA

The New Zealand Press Association was set up in 1879 and is New Zealand’s national news agency. It is owned by the country’s daily newspaper publishers and supplies them with a 24-hour national and international news service and breaking news images.

The service is provided by a data link from NZPA’s main newsroom in Wellington. The NZPA newsroom sends out about 1000 different pieces of information every 24 hours, compiled from the news resources of its own staff, overseas wire services and other sources such as The New Zealand Stock Exchange.
