NEWS is a Japanese boy band under Johnnys & Associates that released their first single in 2003, and then had a major debut in 2004. The group currently contains four members: Koyama Keiichiro, Tegoshi Yuya, Masuda Takahisa and Kato Shigeaki. At the time of their major debut they had a total of nine members altogether including Yamashita Tomohisa (also known as Yamapi), Nishikido Ryo, Moriuchi Takahiro, Uchi Hiroki (who was also a member of Kanjani8) and Kusano Hironori. After their first concert, Moriuchi left the group. Two years later, Uchi was suspended indefinitely from both Kanjani8 and NEWS for an underaged drinking scandal and then a year later in 2006, Kusano suffered the same fate, which caused the suspension of the group in 2006.

While NEWS is successful as a group, they are known for carrying out activities separately. Yamashita Tomohisa has been active as a solo artist, and released singles as part of "Shuuji to Akira" and "GYM". Similarly, Tegoshi Yuya and Masuda Takahisa work outside of NEWS as the duo "Tegomass" and have had regular tours and CD and DVD releases. Nishikido Ryo worked outside of NEWS as part of fellow Johnnys & Associates boyband {{Kanjani8}}, like Uchi Hiroki, but as of 2011, both Yamapi and Nishikido have left NEWS; the former to focus on his solo projects and the latter, due to scheduling conflicts that made it difficult to be in both groups.
