Standard Newswire to Benefit from PR Newswire's Purchase of US Newswire

Contact: Standard Newswire, 212-890-1585


NEW YORK, Oct. 3 /Standard Newswire/ -- Today the largest distributors of press releases, PR Newswire, became the new owner of its main competitor, US Newswire.  Standard Newswire expects to benefit greatly from this change in the market.


Standard Newswire is the recent creation of the Christian Communication Network (CCN), which owns and operates “Christian Newswire,” the nation’s primary distributor of religious content press releases. 


Standard Newswire director Gary McCullough comments, “US Newswire marketed itself as a focused way to reach reporters with breaking news.  Its identity was a leaner, more efficient route to journalists.  In 1986, US Newswire saw this gap in the marketplace and took full advantage of it.  Now that niche is Standard Newswire’s to exploit.   


“Reporters and news producers do not want to wade through the behemoth structure and massive quantity of financial press releases to find breaking news sources.  The US/PR Newswire machine is a Goliath.  In the business of distributing news releases, today’s ‘David,’ Standard Newswire, is happy to exist in Goliath’s shadow and benefit from their distinct differences in size and speed.


“Standard Newswire is in an ideal position to take advantage of this buy-out of US Newswire by PR Newswire.”
