Government WNC Feed Shuts Down

The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) announced the termination of the World News Connection (WNC) newsfeed effective Dec. 31, 2013.

The Open Source Center, the U.S. government agency that provides the feed’s content, reached an agreement with NTIS to forgo an immediate shutdown and instead enter into a transition period until Dec. 31. During this time, NTIS will continue to publish the feed of global, English-language daily news.

NTIS offers monthly subscriptions for WNC to vendors through its dissemination service. It does not have the authority to reverse the decision for permanent shutdown, according to an email from John W. Hounsell of the NTIS Office of Product and Program Management. 

In 2014, vendors will be allowed to offer the feed only as an archive. NTIS will pay royalties to the feed’s sources until March 31, 2014; on that date NTIS will end all agreements with customers.
