This endpoint returns the subset of news publishers that top headlines (/v2/top-headlines) are available from.

This endpoint provides live top and breaking headlines for a country, specific category in a country, single source, or multiple sources. You can also search with keywords. Articles are sorted by the earliest date published first. This endpoint is great for retrieving headlines for display on news tickers or similar.

To get started you’ll need an API key. They’re free for development, open-source, and non-commercial use.

Now let’s consider two of the most popular use cases for News API and walk through each one:

  • I want to show my users live top and breaking news headlines
  • I want to search across every news article that mentions a specific topic or keyword (limited to the last 24 months).
