About Us

Only one web site can bring you the combined coverage of more than 30 local community newspapers—Pacific Northwest Local News.

Sound Publishing is home to some of the oldest, most trusted community newspapers in Western Washington, like the Port Orchard Independent, founded in 1890, and the Whidbey News-Times, first published in 1891; and much newer, suburban voices like the Issaquah Reporter. Market by market these are the leading newspapers in their respective communities.

What separates Sound Publishing's community newspapers from others? We provide readers a superior blend of local news, sports and community coverage recognized with numerous editorial awards every year. We invest in relevant, quality journalism that impacts the lives of our readers and the communities we serve. This commitment is complemented by award winning photography and marketing partnerships.

Sound Publishing's community newspapers touch and reflect the lives of Puget Sound residents from Arlington to Sumner—and PNWLocalNews.com is dedicated to bringing Washington's communities together.

PNWLocalNews.com was created in 2008 to provide a single, comprehensive source of Puget Sound-area news.

All stories on the site are from our community papers written, photographed and/or filmed by journalists who live and work in our communities. The goal of the site is to provide a true sense of what is happening across the Puget Sound.
