News site

A news site is a web site with the primary purpose of reporting news. There are two main types of news site: general news and subject-specific.

The first set of news sites emerged when traditional news providers moved their content online. One of the earliest was a Raleigh, North Carolina newspaper, The News & Observer, which launched its companion site NandO.net in 1994. Others soon followed, including The New York Times, MSNBC.com, CNN, and BBC News.

The offline news industry, newspapers in particular, face a huge threat from the internet medium as more and more users have moved online for their news fare. This has resulted in declining newspaper subscription across the world.
