Why Community Newspapers?

  • Local News Focus: By limiting the geographic area they cover, community newspapers can dive deep into their local coverage and provide content that is not offered in abundance online.
  • Low Overhead: Many community newspapers are able to run successfully from small offices, with a small staff.
  • Adaptability: Without having huge bureaucratic structures in place, community newspapers can change strategy quickly and implement changes more easily than larger, complex organizations.
  • Accessibility to Sources: Social Media such as Facebook have given local reporters easier access to the people they’re looking to interview for their stories.
  • Community Involvement: Having a local office, with a local presence, enables the newspapers to become an active part of the community it’s covering, leading to more favorable views from its readership and greater insights into the social structure of the area it serves.
