Judging by the company they keep, Feature Story News is the best in the business. “FSN is the world’s leading independent broadcast news agency,” says their website, and it just might be. The Economist, Deutsche Welle, AIR News, Channel NewsAsia, Radio New Zealand, Fox News Channel, Westwood One, Vatican Radio, SRN, and The Washington Post may agree. They’re examples of media outlets who think enough of FSN to contract their services. And there are many others.
Boots on the ground, microphone in-hand, Feature Story News goes EVERYWHERE there’s news. FSN is an independent company, with a wide breadth of coverage, now, but small enough to still reflect the virtues of accuracy and integrity of its founder and president Simon Marks — even after twenty years of growth. I can personally attest to this as Mr. Marks actually answers his own email.(!)
“From the outset, the company was founded to provide top-quality, cost-effective, ready-to-air material for our clients around the world. And over the years, we’ve been able to deliver exclusive interviews with some of the world’s leading newsmakers plus compelling stories of specific interest to our clients’ diverse audiences,” said Mr. Marks.
FSN has fully-staffed bureaus in Washington DC, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, London, Brussels and Moscow — and since October 31, 2011, in Denver, CO as well. I’ve seen reports originating from Sydney and Beijing as well.
The five-minute news summary is an excellent newscast. It is always lively, timely, well-produced, and interesting. Radio Newark is both pleased and fortunate to have access through the kindness of Mr. Marks and FSN.
Thanks, FSN! We wish you all the best.
Listeners, enjoy the broadcast, and let us know what you think.
