What Makes Local Community Journalism Important?

Being a trusted news leader, since 1799.

The reader of The Keene Sentinel will feel a sense of belonging and will be inspired and empowered to engage in community. This is made possible by an innovative, caring, proactive and responsive news organization that serves as a trusted source and civic partner.

The Sentinel was founded by 21-year-old John Prentiss in March 1799, and, as we understand it, is one of the five oldest news organizations in the country continuously published under the same name.

Serving over 26 communities throughout New Hampshire.

The paper is locally owned, which is a rarity these days. The publisher and owner, Tom Ewing, lives in Keene and occupies a corner office overlooking West Street.

He, like all the other members of The Sentinel team, is answerable to and for an enterprise that has been serving the community for more than two centuries. (We only missed the administration of George Washington.)

Acknowledging the public nature of our work, we are also answerable to you.

Democratic Societies rely on Local News.

For local news to be relavent and effective, it must be written locally. National and World News can be so impersonal. Publications can no longer depend on ad-based revenue and instead must rely on subscriptions and important donations from people just like you, who care about local journalism.
