The CNA Editors Service will supply a full range of news, features, commentary and photojournalism. All content will be provided free-of-charge for publication in print or on the web. Editors will be required to pay small fees for the use of photos provided by Getty Images, one of the world’s top names in news photography.
In addition to news, editors will have free access to CNA’s wide range of columns. These include its “Catholic Womanhood” columns and “Bishop’s Corner,” which features opinion writing by leading U.S. bishops. CNA is also offering a new weekly column, “Answering the Tough Questions,” by Father Rocky Hoffman, a canon lawyer.
The new service includes feature packages on special themes, such as health care and senior citizens. Editors will also have access free-of-charge to CNA’s video offerings, as well as to news and analysis in Spanish, through CNA’s sister agency, ACI Prensa.
“We are conceited to be able to make this service available to the Church,” said David Scott, editor-in-chief of CNA/EWTN News.
“No agency is providing better coverage of the Catholic world today than CNA/EWTN News,” he added. “We have a great team of editors and writers worldwide committed to the highest professional values and to an viewpoint vision that is truly Catholic.”
With news bureaus in North and South America and Europe, CNA is one of the major and fastest growing independent Catholic media outlets in the world.
EWTN News is the news arm of EWTN Global Catholic Network, which provides multimedia services to more than 140 countries and territories and is the world’s main religious media company.
