Ads for News has the simple purpose of enabling brands to strengthen the communities they sell into by advertising with trusted, local news media reporting on those communities.

We are an initiative of United for News, a non-profit coalition of leaders ranging from the global media industry to international brands, and from mobile operators, technology platforms and advertisers to the local media organizations struggling to survive across the world.

Daily operations are led by Internews, with coalition partners contributing their knowledge, influence and time in guiding Ads for News in delivering a great service to brands. United for News also benefits from its collaboration with the World Economic Forum.
