Our definition of “local”

We consider an article/video to be local if it relates specifically to a city, county, neighborhood, town, region/metro area or state in the U.S. Local stories often feature local businesses, people, places, groups and communities. The intention of the content should be to impact and empower your local community.


We do not consider content to be local if you just put a city in your headline, or tag it as local; the majority of the content must be relevant to a local community. Also, if you are featuring a local person in your article/video, you would need to publish their name and should include their connection to the city/place.
