Spotlight News and the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN) announced today that many of INN’s 250 member newsrooms will be aggregating their 2020 election coverage on Spotlight.
Launched late last year, Spotlight News offers news publishers digital tools for both desktop and mobile applications and pledges to return to them 70 cents of every advertising dollar their content generates on the platform. Aspiring to be “the Netflix for news,” Spotlight launched as a free experience for readers, who can create customized news feeds defined by publishers or by areas of interest.
Through this arrangement with Spotlight News, INN members will feed their coverage into the Spotlight platform, where it will be featured on an Election 2020 dashboard along with coverage from other news outlets.
“We are thrilled to be adding these widely-respected journalism names to our rapidly-growing digital platform,” said Spotlight founder and CEO Tamer Morsy.
Election content from the INN network is expected to begin appearing on the Spotlight website and mobile app in the coming weeks for the 2020 elections and continuing for coronavirus news.Back to top
