The demand for local news is strong.  With traditional newspapers disappearing in communities across the country, new opportunities have become available for online news sites to fill the void. TAPinto is a network of 80 local news sites with more than 10 million readers visiting our sites annually. 

TAPinto sites are locally owned and operated.  TAPinto franchisees come from diverse professional backgrounds including entrepreneurs, journalists, business development and PR professionals, stay-at-home moms and dads, newspaper publishers, nonprofits, universities and more.
