A News (originally known as A-Channel News) is the name of local newscasts on the Atelevision system in Canada. A News programming was produced in markets which were not directly served by a local CTV News service.
When A re-launched as CTV Two, on August 29, 2011, newscasts on the A stations were re-branded as CTV News and longer have separate identities, although the stations have retained the same editorial independence.
A News, originally known simply as news, was the first widely distributed program for serving and reading Usenetnewsgroups. The program, written at Duke University by Steve Daniel and Tom Truscott, was released on a tape given out at the June 1980 USENIX conference held at the University of Delaware. Steve Daniel from Duke offered a presentation on the then-new Usenet network and invited attendees to join.
The Seventh Edition of Unix included a "message of the day" facility, which allowed the system operator to cause messages to be displayed to the user at login. A News (so called because each message began with "A" as a marker character) was an expansion of this facility that allowed news messages to be distributred across an arbitrary number of systems using the new uucp service.
In addition to the login display, news articles could be read at any time from the command line. A user could also post new messages to the local machine (by posting to a special default newsgroup called "general") or queue it for network-wide transmission by placing it in a public group such as "NET.general".
