The News Frontier Database from CJR Aims to Document All U.S. Digital News Outlets

Columbia Journalism Review is embarking on a project to document digital news outlets throughout the United States, posting the first 50 in The News Frontier Database with plans to continue expanding it.

The News Frontier Database features originally reported profiles and extensive data sets on each outlet, and it is searchable by location, type of coverage, business type, revenue sources, year founded, editorial staff size, business staff size, active volunteers, and institutional support.

Suggestions for inclusion can be emailed to, and news outlets that want to be considered for addition can click here.
