Welcome to Metric Media LLC. Our origin began in 2014 by filling the growing news void in local and community news after years of steady disinvestment in local reporting by legacy media. We were founded by a group of people deeply committed to addressing the growing news desert at the local level. This site is one of hundreds and eventually thousands that we are launching nationwide to fill that void in local and community news.
Local, state and federal governments operate today without any media oversight in most of the U.S., a trend that is worsening. When citizens are deprived of basic government information and accurate perspective, communities and civic discourse suffer.
Our reporting philosophy is to provide objective, data-driven information without inserting personal or political viewpoints and biases into our stories. We let the facts speak for themselves.
We also strive to give voice to the voiceless and powerless, those whose opinions on critical issues are now rarely heard. That especially includes the “unorganized”-- entrepreneurs, small business owners, property taxpayers and parents who don’t benefit from lobbyists and public relations consultants.
If you want a voice in your community, we want to hear from you.
