Hoodline works with local publishers and sites to provide audiences with better local news and information in 40 US cities by finding new ways to tell and distribute stories.
Our technology platform uses proprietary machine learning models to tag and contextualize content from more than 400 media publishers, adding 20 unique classifiers including location, topical categories and setinements.

New data sets are quickly becoming available about the world, generated from the products of companies large and small, and from public sources. But they’re siloed, and underexplored. We mine them to figure out the most interesting and important local stories:

Get our stories and analysis distributed alongside other professional news across our content platform.
Receive journalistically appropriate source citations to your products within our articles, driving more awareness and traffic around your core products.
People are using sites and apps to live locally in new ways — which means they spend less time reading the paper, listening to the radio or watch local TV. Each piece of content is organized by location, sentiment and other classifiers across dozens of categories, then made available via our APIs for distribution across any app or site.
