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

newsmediaalliance.org

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.

Industry Benchmarking Tool

Our digital benchmarking tool, metricsXchange, developed exclusively for members, tracks digital as well as print newspaper revenue, audience and engagement metrics that were previously unavailable. It also allows individual publishers to see how their newspaper is performing compared to its competitors. We are currently onboarding members. The Alliance will also provide analyses and highlight newsworthy trends mined from the tool. For more information visit https://www.newsmediaalliance.org/metricsxchange/

Advocacy

The Alliance actively lobbies Congress, the Administration and federal agencies in Washington, D.C. to protect the interests of the industry.  We have executed campaigns to preserve the business deduction of advertising expenses; protect publishers’ intellectual property rights; retain public notice and recruitment advertising in newspapers; shine a light on deceptive ad blocking practices; repeal media regulations that block investment in journalism; and fight against government interference with newsgathering practices and a free press.  No other industry association is in our nation’s capital, representing your business and employees, like we do.

LawView: A tool developed exclusively for members of the Alliance to track state legislation and development on bills, LawView provides timely information that facilitates engagement at the local level. Members receive a monthly update and have access to a map, updated in real time with the latest issues of the Alliance, including Public Notice, UAS, FOIA, SLAPP and TCPA.

Member Communities

The News Media Alliance LinkedIn Groups provide a platform for sharing, brainstorming and learning. Keep up with the latest developments and participate in interactive discussions with fellow industry members on trends and issues affecting your publication.
