Stacker offers data-driven stories free to local media, combining data analysis with editorial context. In addition to national stories, there is a Texas wire with stories at the state level and coverage of the 27 metro areas.
Stacker’s stories are read by millions of readers across publishing partners like Nexstar, Hearst Newspapers, Tribune Publishing and more than a dozen other members of the Local Media Consortium.
There are three ways — all free — to access Stacker content and syndicate to readers:
• Become a Stacker Publishing Partner. This provides a full license for all Stacker stories and corresponding visuals. Newspapers can receive Stacker stories directly in CMS via RSS feed or have access to the partners-only, web-based Story Hub. Visit https://airtable.com/shrRnJQtwWXsr0Ng1 to receive more information.
• Receive Stacker stories by email each morning. Visit https://mailchi.mp/stacker/4t39xwsx2b to sign up for the Texas newsletter. Most stories may be republished from the Stacker website via a Creative Commons license.
• Newspapers that are already Town News Content Exchange users may email Ken Romano, firstname.lastname@example.org, to learn how to access Stacker stories in Content Exchange and get feeds integrated with the push of a button.
Some recent story topics include counties with the highest rate of food insecure children in Texas; Texas ranking as the No. 9 least unionized state; and highest-paying jobs in metro areas that require a two-year degree.
