DescriptionThe Daily Yonder strives towards a paradoxical mission: local news on a national level. The website covers rural news and rural issues posting about one to four new articles a day. The Yonder’s mission is to fill a local journalism void in rural areas and to that end it allows small town papers to publish its content for free. The website is a project of the Center for Rural Strategies a Kentucky-based nonprofit which advocates for rural causes.
