About the News Service

The State House News Service

Since 1894, the State House News Service in Boston has provided journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic and business leaders with high-quality, comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round. We're a small, independent, privately-owned wire service. [Read more about our history, evolution, values...]

Support for Journalists

Journalists have come to view us not as competition, but as support - as one of the most valuable resources they possess to help them do an excellent job. We view other news organizations not as competition, but as customers and potential customers - demanding and important ones.

Our Subscribers

Subscribers form the focus of our work. We earn constant praise from our customers because we're always hustling to anticipate what they're most going to need to know, and get to the source of the information fast. We're news people, but we try to think like policy makers and politicians - partly because it helps our journalism, but mostly because it helps our subscribers. [Read more about our subscribers...]

What We Cover

State and Local Government, House and Senate Sessions, Press Conferences

Objective News

Our coverage stands out in the modern climate of journalism because we strive to keep it so straight. We're proud to have become a vital part of State House life, almost like a public utility. We earned that status by being as objective and impeccable as we possibly can.

Complete News

We provide gavel-to-gavel coverage of House and Senate sessions; the Advances, a top-to bottom look ahead at the coming week in state government; the Roundup, a tartly-written summary and analysis of the past week; extensive coverage of the judicial nominating and confirmation process; daily schedules; and comprehensive wire-service copy of the full range of state government activity.

Current and Past News

Our web site is updated constantly (and for our subscribers, addictively!) as news comes in. We post and archive every press release sent to the Capitol press corps. Everything is searchable. We also post audio recordings of press conferences and take photos of a variety of news events. [Read more about our products and rates...]
