The internet has led to an explosion in global news sites. If you want to know what's going on in Russia today or tap into the buzz feed on global business and lifestyle trends, there's a news site for that.

Yet as content consumption becomes global, more eyes and ears are tuning into local news. If you want the latest information on infectious disease updates, scheduled racial equality demonstrations, or what entertainment venues are open, you need to tap into local news sources. 

Productive individuals are staying abreast of all the local news and even organizing their entire days with push content.

Organize Your Day With Widgets

You may already be getting the news, weather, and sports on your mobile screen. By taking a few minutes to fine-tune your widgets, you can organize your entire day at a glance.

  • Start with your weather and local traffic news.
  • Add the coronavirus update from your local news sources to find out what's open and where you need to wear a face mask.
  • Link to your favorite movie, concert, and other daily entertainment updates.
  • Loop in your social media friends to coordinate your plans.

When sliced into subjects of interest, local news can inform other daily activities. Do not forget your social media feed.

Choose Your News With Blog and News Feeds 

Would you sit in front of the TV for days and watch the same channel? Put another way, what percent of the news content streaming your way do you passively accept? Content aggregators help select, categorize, and organize news content. They collect news, blogs, and social media streams and provide tools to customize the content viewing experience.

Morning news apps are popular. Here, you can aggregate all the local news content you need to start your day in one place. If you want to delve further into a local news story, most content feeders provide the option to save it for later. 

Tune In to Local News on Short Videos

If you do have a few minutes while riding the subway or waiting for a meeting to start, watch some short videos. Short videos have become more popular than traditional news sites.

Since you'll be spending a lot more of your time watching video, controlling what you view can improve the quality of your content experience. Categorizing social media videos by themes is a way to identify local news and other content you can use. 

If you're a content influencer with your own blog, all local news sites provide APIs. This code allows bloggers to integrate select local news themes into blogs.
