WHY DO WE NEED A COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER?
Community journalism is locally oriented, professional news coverage that typically focuses on local news, rather than state, national or world news. A Neighbourhood newspaper, in the most traditional definition, is a newspaper that publishes once or twice a week, and serves a specific geographic neighbourhood like city, individual suburbs or small towns.
‘Hyper local’ coverage by Neighbourhood newspapers often plays a vital role in building and maintaining neighbourhoods. Neighbourhood Newspapers cover wider topics and concentrate on the effect they have on local readers.
