TBNN.it is the most comprehensive local news network today spanning 400 cities

The Breaking News Network changes its URL to tbnn.it, making it simpler for anybody to find their city news by typing tbnn.it/<cityname>


(“BNN”), established in 2009, is currently the largest and in the world. From day one, the network has been dedicated to community service and social impact. The network curates over 18,000 community voices — local media, politicians, civic groups, nonprofits, cultural and arts organizations, and community leaders — across 400 cities worldwide. Including the community as newsmakers (with no pressure to advertise, because there are never any ads!) results in local good will that no other media network has achieved in history.

The Breaking News Network was built as 400 individual news websites curating and syndicating the best media and blog feeds in their respective communities. The new website consolidates all 400 news feeds into one news reference database for local news across topics that go beyond the usual fodder of crime, crashes, sports, weather and traffic. We cover local topical news of social and cultural impact not consistently reported within today’s cash strapped local news ecosystem. These include:

— Local arts news
— Local African American community news
— Local news of social impact
— Local climate change news
— Local food news
— Local immigration reform news
— Local Muslim community news
— Local political news
— Local real estate and housing news
— Local startup and tech news

Impact

Our news feeds contribute about 100,000 local articles per week, averaging 20+ million impressions and clickthrough engagement of over 600,000 every week. All news is consumed at the local level, a media segment untouched by national news networks and publishers because it takes so much extra effort to build local traction. With over 1.5 million followers in aggregate, BNN has amassed scale that ranks it as the only trusted local news source with footprints in every major city in the US, Canada and other English speaking countries.
