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 a unique massive crowdfunding platform that supports national fundraising campaigns down to local levels. They differ from the more well known crowdfunding systems like Kickstarter by fundraising across 350 cities, with advocate support in each city. Its mission is to run national campaigns that bring attention to a societal or cultural need, like hunger in America or the sustainability of jazz music, with contributions directly earmarked for the local institutions engaged in those issues in their cities.
