We want local news to be accessible for everyone

We depend on reader support

We deliver every day

Last year, The Lansing Journal reported, published, and delivered 1,431 local news stories at an average cost of $54.69 per story. That’s an incredible value — and it’s possible only with reader support.

If you are a Lansing Journal reader who loves receiving an actual printed newspaper, we need your help.

We have begun working on a print edition that will be delivered to every home in Lansing in March.

Being in print is expensive. Ink, paper, press time, postage — those are additional expenses we take on in order to reach our community with important information.

Will you make a special gift to help us cover those extra expenses?

In fact, we would especially love it if you would keep that “Monthly” box checked. (See it there, below?) This print edition is a special expense, but our coverage of this community is ongoing — we deliver local news every single day.

Please, do what you can. And thank you!
