The Local News Research Project combines content analysis and digital mapping to explore issues related to local news. The project’s news poverty research examines local coverage in Canadian communities at a time when print and broadcast outlets are scaling back, consolidating or closing, and many online news sites are struggling to stay afloat. Related studies have examined the content, amount and spatial patterns of local news reporting by mainstream and ethnic media in the Greater Toronto Area. For more information, contact us.
