The Islamic Republic News Agency, or IRNA, is the official news agency of the Islamic Republic of Iran. It is government-funded and managed under the Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance. The agency also publishes the newspaper Iran.


As of 2004, the Managing Director of IRNA is Abdollah Nasseri.


History

The Agency was founded in 1934 by Foreign Ministry of Iran as Pars Agency. In 1963 the agency was named Pars News Agency or PANA and brought under supervision of newly-founded Ministry of Information and began operating round-the-clock. In December 1987, Parliament (Majlis) renamed the agency to Islamic Republic News Agency'.

Irna Phillips - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2497 words)
Irna was quoted as calling up her serial, As the World Turns, after an episode had aired that she did not particularly like.
Irna had been in the midst of a feud with actress Jane House (who played Liz Talbot) because House was appearing on Broadway by night doing nude scenes (in Lenny).
Memories of Irna Phillips from the point of Agnes Nixon and several other "behind the scenes" individuals can be found in the book "All Her Children" by Dan Wakefield published in 1976.
