Below is a quick-reference list of News Media Alliance member products and programs, what they do and how to access them.

The Alliance website is a comprehensive repository of industry trends, data, and research that highlights news media strengths and positioning. Members have exclusive access to advertising support materials; reports and case studies on innovative strategies and success stories; thought leader webinars and other member-only events.

Member Community

idx-logo-purpleOur new online community for members, ideaXchange, offers ongoing opportunities for you to engage with other Alliance members. Accessible through our new website, ideaXchange provides a platform for sharing, brainstorming and learning. The portal will also be a home base for gathering and distributing the collective findings from regional innovation summits, member surveys and more.

Industry Benchmarking Tool

Our new digital benchmarking tool exclusively for member publishers, metricsXchange, allows comparisons between markets and publications, providing new insights into the news media industry’s digital business efforts. The Alliance will also provide analyses and highlight newsworthy trends mined from the tool. Member onboarding to start using the tool is currently underway – contact Michael MaLoon ( for more information.

Online Job Board
