The world is accelerating and local news the way it looks today can’t keep up. We need a new model — one that’s dedicated to delivering trustworthy, independent, and meaningful journalism where it matters most.
We hire the best journalists rooted in underserved communities
We give them a mandate to cover the stories that matter, without distraction
We empower them to produce and distribute outstanding journalism
We reinvest revenue back into local newsrooms and the communities they support
Because local journalism should be freely accessible to anyone, not just those who can afford it
Our journalists only cover meaningful stories that impact local community life
No disruptive banners or video ads – instead, each visit to The Media is funded by a single partner
We make you matter to local communities by turning you into forces of positive change
Together we can change the world around us and help local economies thrive
Together we can amplify the impact that journalism has on society
