Who qualifies for AP membership?

The Associated Press offers two types of membership, regular and associate. Regular membership is available to printed newspapers published in the United States. Most regular members are daily newspapers. Associate membership is available to daily newspapers, some weekly newspapers and broadcast stations. Both regular and associate members receive AP news and photos, and share costs in and contribute news to the cooperative; regular members agree to contribute news to the AP. Regular members alone are entitled to vote in elections for the AP Board of Directors.

AP members qualify for the member discount on AP Stylebook purchases.
