NEWS is a Japanese male idol group produced by Johnny Kitagawa under Johnny & Associates. Their official debut single, Kibou~Yell~, was released on May 12, 2004 under Johnny’s Entertainment.
- NEWS stands for the four compass directions those are North, East, West and South.
- Their first single, NEWS Nippon, was only available in limited edition at 7-11 stores. At the time, the unit was only formed to promote the women’s volley ball tournament, which is why their single NEWS Nippon was not their official debut single.
- Morita Takahiro left NEWS before debut single was released.
- Two former members, Nishikido Ryo and Uchi Hiroki, came from Kansai Jr. They did second debut with their Kansai unit, Kanjani8.
- Uchi Hiroki left NEWS on December 2003 due his underage drinking in public. He restarted his career as a trainee. The rank ‘trainee’ is lower than the position of a Johnny’s Jr.
- Kusano Hironori left NEWS in 2006 due his underage drinking. He restarted his career as a trainee.
- Their original name is “NewS” but changed to “NEWS” on December 30, 2006.
- Uchi Hiroki and Kusano Hironori had graduated from their trainee status on January 2008.
- On October 2001, Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo left NEWS. Nishikido returned his activities with Kanjani8 meanwhile Yamashita Tomohisa continued activitities as a soloist.
