Local news organizations that offer a mix of local and national coverage have been given top billing by the National Weather Service in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
The Associated Press and NBC News have both received top rankings in local news categories in the last 24 hours, with NBC News topping the local news rankings for the first time since the storm’s landfall.
NPR’s local news division has also enjoyed a strong year, with the Associated Press topping the list for the second consecutive week.
The AP was also a top-rated local news organization in September for its coverage of the storm and Harvey.
NPR has also continued to make national headlines with its coverage in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.
In a report released this week, NPR said it has now had to deal with nearly 2 million cancellations as a result of the bombings.
The Boston Globe and AP have also had to grapple with a record number of cancellations.
The Globe’s national coverage has been particularly challenging for NBC News.
The Washington Post, which has not published a top 10 local news article since Hurricane Sandy hit, was the only major national publication to publish a top 20 local news story this week.
While the AP has not been able to maintain its top ranking in local coverage for the last three weeks, NBC News is no stranger to the national media spotlight.
In August, NBC announced that it would be the only U.S. network to air an all-news broadcast from its studio in New York City on the same day as a live interview with President Donald Trump, who is scheduled to address the nation on Friday.
NBC News has also aired live coverage of a number of other presidential debates.
