Flipboard is a platform that aggregates the news for users, and recently the platform added a dedicated section for local content. The new section is accessible through the 'Local' tab on the platform, and it has content pertaining to 23 North American Cities.
The dedicated section for local content will be comprised of stories from various local media outlets, including newspapers, TV and radio stations as well as blogs. The local content will span a number of different topics including sports, weather, real estate, and more.
Flipboard's rationale for promoting local news was taken from a 2019 study conducted by the Knight Foundation, which reported that the majority of people trust local media outlets more than larger media organizations.
