Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service (NNS) is an award-winning online source for objective, professional multimedia reporting on urban issues in 15 Milwaukee communities.

NNS covers stories that are important to the people who live, work and serve in city neighborhoods, on topics such as education, public safety, economic development, health and wellness, environment, recreation, employment, youth development and housing.

In March 2012, NNS won a regional Edward R. Murrow Award for excellence from RTDNA (Radio Television Digital News Association).

A project of United Neighborhood Centers of Milwaukee (UNCOM), NNS traces its origins to the Zilber Neighborhood Initiative. We are supported by the Knight Foundation, Zilber Family Foundation, Greater Milwaukee Foundation and Argosy Foundation, with in-kind contributions from UNCOM and Diederich College of Communication at Marquette University.

Media outlets and community organizations are free to use articles, videos, audio reports and photographs from the website at no cost, with appropriate credit to the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service.
