IPI Report: Around the corner, around the world
A global look at local news



Local news media: it’s one of the most important, but also most disrupted media sectors. It also happens to be one of the most innovative.

Managing local news through the digital transition is the biggest challenge for news media right now. And around the world, journalists are rising to that challenge by rethinking what journalism is and can be, centering their communities and building businesses to support this. 

The IPI Global Network has been out and about talking to the journalists, editors and media builders across the world who are making this transition work in their community. We’ve written up what we’ve found out and have 10 big takeaways for you.

We launched our report and shared some of the insights together with a few of the big local experiments, from the United States to India, from South Africa to Europe.
