    Survival of the fittest: The do’s and don’ts of hyperlocals2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On the Swedish local media market, hyperlocal new media face challenges for survival. Still little is known about whether different hyperlocal media ventures have potential for sustainability and how this potential might be expressed. The demanding working conditions require special strategies that need to be explored. Therefore, it’s an important for hyperlocal media entrepreneurs to identify which problems they face in purpose to find sustainable solutions.

    The object of this study is to explore what problems do the hyperlocal news entrepreneurs experience and what strategies do they use for sustaining their activity. Sweden is used as a case since many of the Swedish hyperlocal media entrepreneurs are professional in their media production and therefore interesting as an example in a global context. This study includes a selection of in-depth interviews with Swedish hyperlocals.

    Hyperlocals Matter: Prioritising Politics When Others Don’t2020In: Journalism Practice, ISSN 1751-2786, E-ISSN 1751-2794Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the democratic contribution of hyperlocal media in Sweden in an electoral context. A quantitative content analysis of digital news material is used to examine which topics are prioritised, and which actors get to participate in the local public sphere. Political content is further studied to learn whether it varies between a normal news week and a week during the election campaign. The analysis also examines whether there is a relationship between media density and editorial focus. The results indicate that this segment of hyperlocals—online and independent of legacy media—fills an important function on several democratic levels, including an increased level of editorial coverage of political topics towards an election, a wider distribution of sources and the facilitation of forums for debate.

    Local democracy and the media: Can hyperlocals fill the gap?2019In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 40, no 2, p. 69-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Local news media in Western countries are undergoing major changes, including cutbacks, centralisation and consolidation. In this study, Sweden has been scanned to map the pres- ence of digital hyperlocal media and to investigate which online channels of communication they offer their readers, in order to determine their set-up for democratic functions. The results reveal that very few hyperlocals are positioned in rural areas; instead, the major- ity of them favour metropolitan or urban municipalities. The hyperlocal media presence on social networks is limited to a few platforms, and about half of the hyperlocals offer commentary fields on their news sites. As the democratic structure varies, coupled with the fact that hyperlocals favour high-density population municipalities where traditional media already exist, this study indicates that the democracy dialogue in the local public sphere may be at risk.

    Hyperlocal Journalism and PR: Diversity in Roles and Interactions2019In: OBS - Observatorio, ISSN 1646-5954, E-ISSN 1646-5954, Vol. 13, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hyperlocal media has repeatedly been framed as a potential saviour of local journalism, but the democratic and civic role that often is ascribed to hyperlocals is not obvious or uncomplicated. The hyperlocals’ vulnerable economic situation makes them dependent on free content, for example material produced by local councils or organizations. This paper investigates the role of hyperlocal media entrepreneurs and their interaction with local councils and other stakeholders. We examine how the hyperlocal media entrepreneurs supply their communities with news in places of a media void, and how they perceive their role in their communities. Findings from this qualitative study show that the media entrepreneurs view their news production as an important part of the local community. They provide a forum for debate and information for citizens, local governments and organizations. Their service also includes a channel for local events relevant for the community. The interactions with the local governments vary, as well as the hyperlocal entrepreneurs’ evaluation of how the information provided by the councils can or should be handled. The relation between hyperlocal media entrepreneurs and local governments is a complex process, including both interrelated and contradictory goals.
