What Is RISE NEWS?

RISE NEWS GROUP, LLC  is a new media company that is working to revolutionize local TV news in South Florida.

Based in Miami, we are a brand that is changing the way people engage with local news, information and entertainment content.

The stories we produce are top-notch, highly produced pieces of broadcast journalism.

But it is all locally focused.

Imagine if VICE News, 60 Minutes and the Biscayne Times had a weird news child and that news child just covered South Florida.

That’s us. (Not really. Because obviously that was just a strange metaphor that we now feel weird about).

*-stay tuned for some new game-changing brands to be announced soon.
