This is the first of many media network collaborations for The Breaking News Network.

The Breaking News Network Partners with Public News Service to Support Local Syndication of Public Interest Articles

The Breaking News Network (“TheBNN”) and Public News Service (“PNS”), a member-supported news service that advocates journalism in the public interest, today announced a media collaboration that expands PNS’s local news distribution. The collaboration aims to insure that PNS’s regional and local public service news reaches the communities most affected by its coverage by syndication across TheBNN’s media network of 350 cities.

Lark Corbeil, Founder of PNS, says, “Creating media that serves the public is critical. And just as important is bringing that news to readers. Our collaboration with TheBNN will deliver our public interest content to local readers where it will have the most tangible impact.”

The Breaking News Network curates and publishes the most interesting local media and blog feeds in 350 cities worldwide. One of its main mission is to provide a non-commercial local media voice to journalists working in the public interest in the communities it serves. According to Patrick Kitano, administrator of TheBNN, “We’ve long supported local media institutions by automatically sharing their updates via what we call our Media Amplification Program. With PNS, we’re accomplishing our mission to syndicate their news directly to the communities they serve”.

About Public News Service

Currently reaching an audience of over 24 million weekly through 8,000 other outlets, PNS was launched in 1996 to promote public dialogue in a rapidly changing media environment. PNS examines the effects of policy on areas that receive too little coverage, lifting up often marginalized voices and making greater journalistic breadth available to broadcasters and publishers on any platform. Support comes from non-profit organizations, foundations, individuals and businesses for social responsibility.

About The Breaking News Network

Started in 2009, The BNN curates the most interesting media and blog feeds (avoiding car crashes and mundane crime reports) in 350 cities worldwide to create a real-time ticker tape of social media-sourced news in each city. The noncommercial network is unique in supporting each city’s civic groups, politicians, arts organizations, educators and causes by providing them with a free media voice to connect with their community. The Network now has, in aggregate, over 400,000 dedicated followers in part because they will never encounter a banner ad on the sites.
