What is hyperlocal media?

Hyperlocal media organisations cover community-focused public interest news and important local issues through print and online, working at a local geographic level. 


Gain the support and guidance of the LINA team and members

We help nurture hyperlocal media organisations, and encourage new hyperlocal entrants by providing capacity-building support, expert advice and access to critical third-party services. The hands-on support provided by LINA will directly address the challenges commonly cited by hyperlocal news organisations.

Enhancing high-quality news coverage of important local, original and public-interest issues

We’ll help you connect with similar organisations, and support peer-to-peer learning – whether online or in-person, via conferences, and develop a digital library of resources, including style guides and content templates.
