Spotlight newsroom: Press Association
It's high time we took a look at the Press Association, the well-known multimedia news agency based in the UK and Ireland. Founded in 1868, the agency's creators declared that PA was "formed on the principle of co-operation and can never be worked for individual profit, or become exclusive in its character." Today the most highly followed journalist there is Martyn Ziegler, Chief Sports Reporter, followed by Simon Peach, Sports Journalist; Ian Parkes, Formula One Journalist; Lisa Haynes, Fashion and Beauty Editor; Paul Hirst, Sports Reporter; and Carl Markham, Sports Reporter. The most active PA journalist on Twitter this morning, however, happens to be James Tapsfield, Political Correspondent!
