These niche media innovations range from app news channels to journalism crowdfunding platforms that are designed to encourage honest and authentic reporting. In addition to social media newsfeeds that are curated to fit a user's interests, other standouts include nice documentary platforms that marry political and social stats with artistic videography.

Other notable examples of niche media innovations include radio stations that broadcast from an underwater setting and others that solely feature wellness-promoting and motivational content.

Additionally, examples like news-filtering bots and cultural news platforms cater to user's specific topics of interest while removing filler content that they may not have interest in. This streamlined approach to current events caters to busy professionals who desire to stay in the know while being realistic about general time limitations.
