Deliver Your News to the World

About Us

WebWire distributes your business, organizational and personal news releases and press releases on and over the Internet. As an integral part of online marketing, we deliver your news releases directly to Internet readers and press releases to targeted media (reporters, registered media and trade publications) and media only wire services (accessed by leading print, broadcast and online publications). Each article is clearly identified as a press release and is part of a nearly 100-year-old global marketing practice.

WebWire was created in 1995 by Michael Schwartz, entrepreneur and then president of a USA based communications company offering creative and technical services for companies such as United Parcel Service (UPS) and General Electric (GE). These services included pioneering online interactive learning for Aflac Insurance and early video news release, satellite media tour and other public relations presentations for worldwide brands including Holiday Inn and Coca-Cola.

Begun as an experiment, WebWire moved online in 1998 as proof that the early Internet could support sophisticated databases, resulting with a service that delivered press releases to early Internet users. These efforts were fueled by the prospects of some day providing options to the proprietary network that then delivered news and press releases.

A short time later, WebWire caught the attention of a global news organization. WebWire contracted with them to help deliver online news messaging to their many affiliates, a solution that eventually reduced their costs related to a service provided by The Associated Press (AP).

In the early 2000s, the Internet was pre-bubble and growing at a wild pace while early online news release and press release distribution services like WebWire were becoming a cornerstone of online marketing. WebWire reorganized in 2003 as a freestanding corporation and continues leading the way in this essential part of modern day marketing.

Since early 2004, WebWire content is fully indexed by the major search providers (Google, Bing and Yahoo) and has been seamlessly integrated into news aggregation efforts that include the earliest emergence of Google News.

WebWire is a leading online news release and press release service provider at, offering services that are both cost efficient and essential when organizations, companies and individuals need to associate words and phrases that describe their efforts, with their URL (Internet address). Additionally, WebWire offers traditional press release distribution direct to the media.

WebWire administration is based in Atlanta, Georgia USA with technology originating in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Operations are generally 24 hours, 7 days as week, but exceptions may include technical maintenance and select major North American holidays.
