Press release | Stacker

New York, NY — (February 3, 2022) — Data-driven newswire Stacker has signed five new publishing partners: Adams Publishing Group, Advance Local, Beasley Media Group, Narcity and WEHCO. Stacker will provide its localized journalism to the newsrooms of these partner networks.

The new partners reflect the diversity of the current media landscape: press groups, broadcasting organizations and digital platforms. With Adams Publishing Group and Advance Local in the top 10 newspaper networks, and Beasley Media Group in the top 10 radio groups, these partnerships add to Stacker’s global distribution network of more than 2,000 publishers. In addition to the latest partnerships, Stacker grew its publisher network by 300% in 2021, helping to grow its journalism to 40 million readers last year.

Stacker takes a different approach to the traditional newswire service by delivering data-driven content — a popular and rapidly growing area of ​​journalism that hasn’t seen the same level of investment outside of individual newsrooms. Whether it’s localized coverage of rural hospital closures or a breakdown of voter demographics by state, Stacker produces trusted journalism by illuminating stories often hidden in local and national data. . Stacker provides a national office for local and independent news partners, helping them fill coverage gaps, supplement their own reporting, and ultimately enable them to deliver engaging, data-driven stories to their readers.

Stacker Local, the company’s newest content product, provides hyperlocal information at scale, covering news, business and lifestyle topics and localized in all 50 states and 386 metropolitan areas. Stacker works with local outlets from Nexstar, Hearst and many others to help smaller newsrooms build coverage and focus their efforts on the local community stories they do best. Stacker Local is driven by the combination of a proprietary storytelling technology stack and a team of journalists who transform data into comprehensive stories featuring state, city, county or even zip code level information. .
