Why is news said to be “breaking”?

Studying phrasal verbs I found break in meaning as interruption. My teacher suggested that it can be also used in news as breaking news, but usually the midia use the gerund form. Actually, both sounds very similar in speech so I was wondering if breaking is an evolution of break in.

"Break" itself means interruption, so something that is doing the interrupting is breaking
