In recent years, local journalism has become a relevant subject in journalism studies, due to the significant number of journalists working in local newsrooms. The aim of this contribution is to explore the experience of journalists in a particular context of online local journalism, here named market-oriented. The goal of this research, conducted through semi-structured interviews to some key-informants, is to understand whether local journalists have modified the organization of their working activity within the newsrooms, or their own role perceptions. The research has highlighted how these journalists are not facing boundary-work practices, and how they have still not dissolved the interweaving between information and communication, and has prepared the ground for new research scenarios on local journalism.
