Editors/News Directors:

The Nobel Prize winners will be announced throughout the weeks of Oct. 1 and 8 in Stockholm, Sweden, and Oslo, Norway.

The Associated Press is planning to offer spot and enterprise coverage around the awards. The AP will file urgently from each announcement. A longer story will follow with more details on the winner, along with spot photos and video.

The Nobel Prize in literature will not be awarded this year following sex-abuse allegations and other issues that have affected the public image of the Swedish Academy that selects the winner. Instead, the academy announced in May that the 2018 prize will be given in 2019.

Here are the AP’s all-format coverage plans (all times GMT).
