There is a Real Void that Needs to be Filled.

Everyone gets the national news and traditional media outlets flock to cover scandals and tragedies however there is a real void that needs to be filled in order to connect people with their immediate communities and the news and events that are taking place in their own backyard.

In a world where many feel disenfranchised, where traditional media increasingly seems to be promoting their own agenda and both sides publish “Fake News,” people need a voice and a trusted platform that delivers various viewpoints.   Express your opinions, share ideas, events and to foster change and promote engagement.  This is exactly what we strive to provide.

Why Hyper-Local News?

Local Coverage, Global Perspective

Connecting with and building strong communities is important. People want to know what's happening in their local area and they also want to know what's happening in various parts of the world.

What our clients say

I had just opened my doors and expected the world to flood in.  That didn't happen.  So I waited and it still didn't happen.  I realized that i knew how to take care of customers when they arrived but I had no notion about how to make them arrive.  The people at HTNN walked me through the process and the customers haven't stopped!

Offering a discount on my local HTNewsNet site brought customers, offering a discount valid for slow periods brought me customers when I need them.  Amazing people to work with!

About us

We’re passionate about getting the facts right.  Fake news and bias aren’t welcome here. We offer our own opinions and viewpoints but they are clearly marked as such.  If we’re fall short, we make corrections.  The far left and the far right seem to make all the noise and as such, get all the play, we appeal to those somewhere in the middle.  Those thinking folks who are plus or minus two standard deviations from the mean. 

That means we want to hear from you too.  We want differing perspectives and viewpoints.  We respectfully ask that you attack the issue, not the individual. 

We don’t feel that either political party has a monopoly on good ideas, neither party has a monopoly on fraud and corruption either. 

We’re independent. We’re adversarial. We have no issue holding public officials accountable and we’re good at separating fact from spin.
