Spotlight Media Labs Media Press Kit

Welcome to Spotlight

We make an app that surfaces high-quality news, based on machine learning, with built-in revenue opportunities for publishers that are more attractive than anything they can get from existing distribution channels.

We're news junkies who happen to be machine learning experts. We've built a series of prototypes and done market surveys. We've built a world-class advisory board (editors from BuzzFeed, LA Times, The Times Picayune, The Guardian, Vanity Fair).

Local newspapers are closing at an alarming rate. Smaller publications are struggling to modernize and most lack the resources to create their own mobile distribution platforms. Spotlight is working with local and college newsrooms to bring them the most recent technologies in content distribution and discovery.

Our app features clean, friendly, user focused design.

Our Mission

To make sure that everyone, everywhere has access to high quality journalism.
We keep hometown and college communities engaged and connected.

Our Services

Spotlight modernizes newsroom technology and distribution. We've developed two core products for publishers: a next generation mobile application and a new type of content management system, both of which can be quickly deployed within an existing workflow and without costly technical infrastructure and staff. Spotlight’s algorithms match readers and publishers via network junctions. Our product roadmap is to bring technology usually only native to large technology companies to small newsrooms, including machine learning and augmented reality.
