Local NEWS matters to small towns and communities across the USA. When a community loses its local news, it loses its ability to be informed about issues that will impact them, and has no way to hold its elected government accountable, and the community becomes disengaged.

When the local NEWS disappears, these communities show measurably lower graduation rates, lower median incomes, lower voter turnout and significant challenges raising the municipal funding. Local NEWS Network is committed to bringing the local news back to small towns across the USA, reversing the trend of the last 20 years.
