Local news needs your support
Shore Publishing began with one newspaper—The Source—in 1996. Since then we’ve added six publications—Harbor News, The Sound, Guilford Courier, Valley Courier, East Haven Courier, and North Haven Courier—covering the news in 13 towns from East Haven to Old Saybrook and publish the regional news website Zip06.com. Since those first days, we’ve been there for all the local news from budgets to births to basketball championships, and helped local businesses reach shoppers through good times and bad.
And like you, we’ve never seen anything like this. In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, our readership is growing even more as our residents rely on us keeping them up to date on rapidly changing conditions.
The coronavirus crisis has brought local economies to near standstill, and traditional media advertising along with them. That new financial challenge means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide important local news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.
Shore Publishing/Zip06.com is part of The Day Publishing Company, a locally owned and operated independent media company, part of a vanishing breed in the United States. We are dedicated to delivering local, independent, reliable, and accountable journalism.
If you believe local news and information is critical, especially during this crisis, please donate to this new fund to help keep us on the job. If you’ve recently contributed through our Voluntary Pay Program, thank you! Your support is always appreciated. We wouldn’t be seeking your additional support if these weren’t unprecedented times.
The funding will help us provide the staff and resources needed to keep track of all the COVID-19 information and data being released, ensuring you get the latest, most critical local news.
While we continue to cover the pandemic, rest assured in knowing that our journalists will continue to fulfill its role as a vigilant watchdog for our readers’ interests. Our job is to ensure freedom of information is not just an expression, but a mission to keep our community informed.
All donations to this fund are tax deductible. Thank you for your support during this critical time.
