Taking local news to the really local level: Using location data to deliver relevant local news (Nieman Lab)

Nieman Lab: Taking local news to the really local level: Using location data to deliver relevant local news. “Our way of exploring the issue was to test an app that sends people local news stories about where they actually are. Unlike national or international newsrooms that are incentivized to send or organize stories by continent, country, state, or city — local newsrooms can organize stories about neighborhoods, wards, counties, and towns. They write about block-level issues, and if technology lets us deliver stories by block now, the chances that a nearby local story will be relevant to someone increases significantly.”
