BNN Campaigner

What is BNN Campaigner?

BNN Campaigner leverages the largest local news network in the world to expose and promote campaigns for social good.

What do we do?

The Breaking News Network (, and its affiliated networks covering local topical news, can amplify campaigns nationally across over 400 city news feeds, and create social engagement that no other national media network can do. Our campaign aren’t positioned as advertising. We optimize messaging, often as compelling “breaking news”, for virality in order to achieve engagement. The syndication effect is tantamount to one daily “Thunderclap” that harnesses hundreds of trusted local news feeds, many of which have been followed by local readers for over six years.

Messaging as breaking news is not only more credible to readers, but is more cost efficient

Media Impact

Our campaigns have documented the following metrics over one month based on one daily post across our news networks:

  • Social reach: ~24,000,000
  • Twitter impressions: ~1,000,000–1,200,000
  • Engagement rates on Twitter: ~20,000–25,000
  • Clickthrough rates on Facebook: ~5,000

Examples of Media Impact

@RaceMovie amplified by BNN, BLCK (Black News Network) and CHNG (Change News Network for Social Impact) yields 640 RTs and 222 likes (as of 2/18/16 10:00am)
