Reach the most progressive decision makers in local media

Local Media Association / Local Media Foundation

Local Media Association is a thriving and innovative association that serves more than 3,000 local media companies (newspapers, TV, radio, directories, digital-only media, and more) as well as hundreds of research & development companies in the industry. LMA works to reinvent business models for news, assisting local media companies with the digital transition via cutting-edge programs, labs, collaboratives, conferences, webinars, research, reports, and training.

At Local Media Association, we believe some of the best sustainable business model initiatives are a result of partnerships between local media companies and industry vendors, suppliers and providers — or, as we like to call these companies, R&D partners. We use the term R&D partners because these companies have incubated and brought to market so many of the innovative ideas and solutions we see today.


Would you like a team member to contact you to discuss how LMA membership can benefit you and your company?


LMA has never “boxed in” member types. We believe all members, media companies and R&D partners alike, should be treated equally and afforded common member benefits. Now more than ever, we encourage collaboration among the media companies and R&D partners to develop the types of products and services that will best serve local media, their clients and audiences.

We could list more than a dozen reasons to join LMA, including unmatched access to media company members, cutting-edge research, timely and innovative programs, and inclusion in our member database.

“Local Media Association provides more than a marketing partnership. Our company has had the privilege of working with LMA for the last few years through partnership, marketing, and events. LMA is our most valuable marketing relationship driving nearly 100 qualified prospects and nearly $2 million in new business. If there was only room for one marketing partnership it would be LMA.”

Brock Berry, CEO / Co-Founder, Adcellerant
