Definition of stringer
- a freelance reporter or local correspondent who gets paid by the story. Origin: one theory dates back to the time when part-time reporters were paid for each column inch of copy the newspaper printed. At the end of the week/month, they would measure the space their writing occupied in the newspaper by a length of string. They'd turn in the piece of string, and would be paid according to how long the string was.
