About Us

City News Service is the nation's largest regional wire service, operating 24 hours a day. More than 150 subscribers - media, private business and government offices - rely on CNS around the clock for top news of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties.

CNS has full-time reporters covering all the important news center "beats," such as public safety, courts, and local and county governments. These reporters are employees of CNS - we never rely on stringers or free-lancers. We have reporters covering these essential beats in every one of our Southern California counties. In addition, we have general assignment reporters who go out on stories as news develops.

Every item from beats in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties is transmitted instantly to the main editing center in Los Angeles, where all content is reviewed by CNS editors before being sent to subscribers.
