My name is Martha Conway, publisher of the new Berks County Courier.
As publisher of the successful Madison County Courier in my New York home, we’ve been quite successful helping underserved and often ignored segments of smaller communities, such as libraries, schools, non-profit organizations, law enforcement and churches – get the word out about their news, special events and programs.
With my son and his family residing in the Greater Reading area, I find myself spending more and more time here, and I want to bring this same community service to my home away from home in Berks.
I have 17 years’ experience in community journalism, and I want to provide the community and the organizations it serves an opportunity to share their news to an expanded audience. Our website pushes your news and events out to social media outlets, amplifying the audience that will learn about your goings-on.
For some examples of how others are using this medium, visit MadisonCountyCourier.com.
Our anticipated launch date is Oct. 1, 2017.
