Here, research from the Netherlands and the United States identifies a significant overlap between what journalists and journalism scholars expect from local journalism and what people more broadly expect, but also a wider range of roles beyond those that professionals and academics normally associate with local media. Qualitative research with local television audiences in the Netherlands suggests that people there expect local media to do seven things: (1) supply relatively diverse, reliable, timely, and unbiased background information on community affairs; (2) foster social integration by helping people navigate their local community; (3) provide inspiration and good examples; (4) ensure representation of different groups in the community; (5) increase local intra-community understanding between different groups; (6) maintain a form of local memory or chronicle of local affairs; and (7) contribute to social cohesion, a sense of belonging to the locale (Costera Meijer, 2010).

By comparison, more than 300 local websites are part of the network Openly Local, and more than 1,000 local newspapers are part of the Newspaper Society, all serving much smaller areas than the broadcasters. 2 The definition of local media used throughout this book is tied to territory, that is, local media and regional media are media primarily oriented towards covering more circumscribed geographic areas than national and international media. Historically, their orientation has in large part been defined by their circulation or broadcast area, a seemingly ‘natural’ delineation that is losing meaning as people can access digital editions of local media from elsewhere.
