    something to play news

    I am a junor high school student in Osaka, Japan.

    I came across the following sentence while I was reading a handout given by my English teacher at school.

    'A radio is something which plays music and news.'

    Do you say 'to play news'?

    I think "broadcasts" would be better than "plays".

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    I think 'to broadcast' is better!
