Australian Associated Press (AAP) is an Australian news agency. It was established by Keith Murdoch in 1935.[1]

AAP employs more than 175 journalists who work in bureaus in all states and territories of Australia. It also maintains correspondents in New Zealand, Port Moresby, London, Jakarta and Los Angeles as well as using a network of contributors from the US, Europe, Asia and Africa. AAP's domestic news coverage is complemented by alliances with the major international news agencies. AAP launched a New Zealand Newswire (NZN) division in September 2011 with offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. NZN closed its digital news video team in September 2017. NZN, which was employing 14 journalists at the time, closed on 27 April 2018, although AAP retained two full-time journalists in New Zealand.[2]

AAP is owned by three Australian news organisations – News Corp Australia, Nine Entertainment Co., and Seven West Media. Nine owns 47%, News owns 45%, and Seven West 8%.[3] Together these companies produce the vast majority of Australian newspapers.

AAP's main focus is on breaking news, but it also distributes 'soft' news, colour stories, feature stories, opinion, filler material and photographs.

The editor-in-chief is Tony Gillies.

In the 1990s, AAP's telecommunications division was spun off as a telco, AAPT, and sold to Telecom New Zealand in 2000. It was sold again to TPG Telecom in 2013.

On 3 March 2020, it was announced that the AAP will be dissolved in June of that year.[4]
