Welcome to the Local Media Consortium.
When we launched in 2013, internally we referred to this as Consortium 2.0, some dot-com shorthand for how the organization has iterated — and a signal that it would continue to evolve. Externally, we adopted the name Local Media Consortium— and the URL LocalMediaConsortium.com — to reflect that the Consortium is a national, multi-platform partnership of local media outlets.
It took a heroic amount of work to bring the Local Media Consortium from concept to reality. Their focus has been, always, to leverage the Consortium’s scale to forge new partnerships, explore new development opportunities and allow members to work together to innovate. Major technology and media companies have taken notice. So are startups. So are media companies previously uninterested in joining the Consortium.
This is an exciting time. The Consortium continues to grow. The opportunities continue to build. The work we have done has paved a new path.
