StreetScoop Local News Search

Research Buzz Search Gizmos: “Do you want local news? I mean LOCAL news? Enter a US address. StreetScoop will find the nearest large city, query the FCC for the television stations in the area, and aggregate those domain names along with your street name into a Google search, which then opens in a new tab. If the address you entered is not found you’ll get an error. Please don’t use abbreviations for street types — use Street not St, Road not Rd, etc. Do not use suites, apartment numbers, or commas in your address. If your address is not found you’ll get an error message. Sometimes it’s finicky for a reason I haven’t determined yet and I apologize. Many thanks to SimpleMaps for the dataset that I needed to get this doing right…”
