Hoodline Platform

Powering Local Discovery


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.

Local data wire
We turn large local data sets into thousands of hyperlocal automated wire stories each month, syndicating coverage of neighborhood topics that would otherwise go uncovered.

Content recommendation module
We power local content discovery on publisher sites through easy-to-add and customizable modules that feature fresh, local news and drive quality, high engagement.

Local distribution

Get our stories and analysis distributed alongside other professional news across our content platform.

Citation marketing
