Hyper-local news sites cover the news in specific areas where people live. Most of the time it is a very small and particular neighborhood or city. These pop up as the locals crave to read news about their surrounds instead of national news. Unfortunately these sites give their readers what they want but the people behind the scenes have no real way to make money to keep their website going.
To keep you updated on our local area, Patch.com is a great website that embodies exactly what a hyper-local news site is. All of the Tampa Bay greater metropolitan area cities and neighborhoods have their own specific sites!
If you are interested in what is going on in Orlando and in particular the western region then westorlandonews.com is a great site to venture into. Last but not least, if you’d like to keep up to date on things going on in the capital Tallahassee, FL. Visit the floridacurrent.com where all things politics that deals with taxpayers can be found.
These sites are both interesting and beneficial because you can gather the best local news quickly, whether it be your political representation or a crime watch a few streets over from where you reside.
