Welcome to the Antioch Herald
Starting a newspaper in this day and age and in this economy is not easy. But we feel that Antioch, a thriving city of more than 100,000 people, deserves its own newspaper that is of, by and for the people, places, events and activities of Antioch, California.
Because it is a financial challenge to launch a newspaper, we started off online initially. But now the print edition is sent at the beginning of the month to every mailbox in almost every residence and business in Antioch. We hope eventually to expand to twice a month – with the support from advertisers and readers who support those advertisers.
After a five-year hiatus from newspaper publishing, the team that brought you the first city-wide, direct-mailed newspaper is back, with the same leadership and some of our same writers, plus new staff, as well. With 28,000 circulation each month, including 27,000 by mail and 1,000 copies distributed in racks and stacks around town, the Antioch Herald is Antioch’s only city-wide newspaper.
But, with a limited staff, we depend on your help. Please send us letters to the editor, news tips, articles, article ideas, photos, press releases, etc. If something interesting is going on in your neighborhood, school, church, workplace, club and elsewhere, let us and your fellow residents know. We’re here for you. This is your paper and news site. We appreciate your participation in providing our residents information about Antioch they might not find elsewhere.
Please send your items to firstname.lastname@example.org.
