List of Online Local News Resources



Local news refers to any news relevant to a single area, especially in journalism. Local news is available on television news channels, news sites focused on providing local news to an area, radio shows, podcasts and most commonly, newspapers.
Local news covers local topics including:

  • Sports
  • Weather
  • Criminal Justice & Crime
  • Business & Economy
  • Events
  • Education
  • Politics

Usually local news is normally focused on the same categories as international and national news but focused only on local events. For example, local sports might focus only on the local teams, or if the town is small, on school teams. The same ideas are applied to education, business and economy and etc. so that readers or listeners can learn about only the things that are relevant to them and their local community.
Some local news sources will also include important news updates from national sources should they affect the local community. This type of news includes new laws, elections and etc.
The easiest way to get local news on a daily basis is to sign up for local newspapers. These can usually be purchased for city, county or state and will normally include everything of note that has happened within the last 24 hours. Newspapers can be costly and won’t give you news updates as they are happening.
Local news television is another way to receive local news. Usually assigned to certain times such as 6 o’clock, ten o’clock and etc., you can find local news channels on several TV stations. You will have to have access to a TV at these times to catch the news.
Radio news is featured at certain times of the day like televised news but will usually be more convenient to listen to if you are at work or driving during the time of airing.
Internet news is the newest and one of the most convenient ways of catching up on news of any kind. Local news can be found online on either sites catering to your area. Most of the time local newspapers will have online sites that allow you to either read news for free or for a subscription.
Subscribers can catch up on news, usually as it happens or a few hours later, via website, mobile phone or etc.
Most web news is optimized for mobile viewing and you may or may not be able to purchase or download a mobile app to receive news directly to your phone.
Local news can also be found through local divisions of major news providers such as MSN or CNN. However, local news isn’t always offered to all areas which means that this local news source can be somewhat unreliable.
