Let's make local news sustainable together

Since the decline of print journalism, local news has been lost at sea.

It's impossible to reach a local audience simply with a 140 character tweet, hashtag, or a link slapped on a Facebook wall. Geography needs to be properly acknowledged.

At Bloom, we are more than just a technology platform, we are a mission-driven organization who collaborates with publishers to improve journalism in your community.
