New database aims to document digital news outlets across the United States

The Columbia Journalism Review has launched a News Frontier Database cataloguing digital news outlets across the United States.

The database, according to the Columbia Journalism Review, is a "tool for those who study or pursue online journalism, a window into that world for the uninitiated, and, like any journalistic product, a means by which to shed light on an important topic. We plan to build the NFDB into the most comprehensive resource of its kind."

The News Frontier Database (NFDB) already has 50 profiles of different outlets, such as Politico, the Huffington Post, and Streetsblog.

The database is searchable by location, type of coverage, type of business, sources of revenue, year founded, size of editorial or business staff, volunteers, and institutional support, according to MediaBistro.

Journalists interested in adding their online organization to the database can go here.
