Abstract [en]

This paper presents a case study of the digital news channel VGRfokus. The news channel was started in November 2017 by the Region Västra Götaland (VGR) – the county council at the west coast of Sweden – with the articulated goal to provide journalists, employees as well as citizens in the region with news updates. VGRfokus was launched with an editorial written by the communication chief of VGR, Erik Lagersten. In the editorial, Lagersten entitles the channel as a “news site” with an “independent editorial office of civil servants” (VGRfokus 2017). VGRfokus illustrates one of the most novel types of news production in the landscape of hyperlocal media operations, HLMO, and we discuss its role from two perspectives. First, we use the concept of HLMO (e.g. Metzgar et al. 2011; Nygren et al. 2017; van Kerkhoven & Bakker 2014) to analyze the new form of news production as illustrated by VGRfokus. Second, we discuss implications of the distinctive features of VGRfokus for the media ecosystems– in terms of changing genres, roles, relationships and identities – as well as more broadly for society and democracy. We base our analysis on empirical data from the very first months of VGRfokus’ existence. Interviews with employees at the editorial office at VGRfokus.se are combined with a content analysis and linguistic analyses of three types of media texts: (a) content published at the VGRfokus.se, (b) news articles that make references to VGRfokus, and (c) opinion articles about VGRfokus.se.
