To put it succinctly, yourdailylocal.com is just that. Daily, local news, written by local journalists.
The premise is very simple, we want to bring true, local journalism back to local communities.
A free press is one of the backbones of this country. It holds those in power positions accountable, keeps the populace informed of the events of the day, and highlights members of the community and their extraordinary stories. But a free press can’t be free if it bows to the whims of some corporate entity, focused solely on profits, and often headquartered hundreds of miles away.
The disappearance of hometown newspapers has had a calamitous effect on the ability of residents to stay informed about the people, places and events that matter most to them. Our goal is to change that and give people the news that actually affects their daily lives.
We also believe that a free press shouldn’t just be free of government or corporate oversight, but free to consume as well. For that reason, we won’t ask for subscriptions or hide our content behind paywalls. A well-informed community is better able to make important decisions, about politics, education, the local economy and recreation, among others, and it shouldn’t have to pay for the information needed to make those decisions.
In short, we’re here for you. To bring you the news you need, when you need it.
