We are champions of local news

We are leaders in the expansion of community-based journalism and marketing and are focused on building profitable and sustainable local news sites.

Our mission of strengthening communities guides our work to:

Inform our audience, gauge public opinion through our proprietary suite of interactive tools and provide insight and context around the issues impacting the day-to-day lives of those who live in the communities we serve.

At the same time, we seek to strengthen the local economic base by connecting local businesses to our large local audience through a suite of innovative, community-based programs.

Our industry-leading platform, Villager, is specifically designed to match the complex needs of the digital news publisher, their readers and advertisers.

As a globally recognized leader in hyper-local news, defending and improving the rights and standards of journalistic integrity is at our core.
