1.15. Media Organisations and Local News in a New Media Environment: Super Local News – Redefinition of News from a Local Perspective

Asta Cepaite, Elisabeth Stúr

New forms of media have produced opportunities for a new kind of journalism. The technological changes have transformed the content, how it is created, the methods of news work, how news companies are organized, and the ways in which individuals use and interact with content.

The objective of this paper is to discuss the phenomena of super local news in perspective of the recent changes in local media organisations in a context of a transformed media environment. This is exemplified by the development on the Swedish local media market with focus on the role of local news in media organisations. In this paper three research questions are selected from the research field: First, what kind of changes in the organization structure and the news production has the local media organization to face? Secondly, how has the form and content of local news changed? Last, what will be the future role of the local news?

The study is based on qualitative methods. The majority of the material for the study is collected from selected Swedish local papers.

Some results of the study concerns changing procedures in content production and distribution, which require restructuring of journalists’ working methods. Production of the news becomes more rapid which can have an effect on the quality of the content. Reduction of local news offices at the same time as production of the local content is preferred influence likely who is producing the content and controlling its quality.
