We’re community service media powered by locals, devoted to the public good.
The Breaking News Network is the largest hyperlocal news network in the US with the expressed mission to serve the social good. We curate the best media and blog news feeds in 350 cities, ticker taping news in real time 24×7 to an aggregate 500,000 local followers on social media. Our most unique media feature is giving the community a simple method to broadcast their news and events to our local readers in every city. Mayors and city councils, local museums and performing arts organizations, nonprofit news networks, local newscasters, indie filmmakers, and good causes all get their word out through our media amplification program. With the community acting as news correspondents, we provide a more comprehensive 360-degree view of local news than traditional media, and have garnered a dedicated local following based on our non-commercial, public service approach to the communities we serve.
To help fundraise for the social good, we’re launching BNN Funding, a massive crowdfunding platform that will revolutionize crowdfunding by syndicating national campaigns across 350 cities for the benefit of local institutions in each city. In addition, each city will have local advocate networks supporting campaigns to foster critical the community word of mouth necessary to spur donor action. Crowdfunding campaigns need local media marketing support, and we can do this across 350 cities.
