Investing in local news

Community news keeps us informed and connected—in good times and bad. That’s why we send out our Daily News email every day. The articles we publish are important for our community. We make them available for free because we want everyone to have equal access to local news.

We can only do that because of local readers who understand and invest.

What local news looks like—

The Lansing Journal is all about our local community. We cover stories that are important to our community but overlooked by other media.

We reported the local impact of the spike in property tax assessments.

We compiled COVID-19 data specific to Lansing, as well as statewide totals, and information from neighboring Indiana. Every. Single. Day. For more than a year.

We kept you updated on the installation of license plate recognition cameras at some of our town’s major intersections.

We post local obituaries, local COVID numbers, Local Voices, local information about our schools and alums, and more.

How important is that kind of local information? (No one else is publishing it.)

Your friends and neighbors

Support local newsWhen Marlene Cook wrote a book about the First Church PCA graveyard, when Ballet Folklórico performed at TF South, when local residents started a Food Swap, and when Lansing veterans participated in Honor Flight Chicago—you read about it in The Lansing Journal.

Who else is investing time and energy to write about your friends, your neighbors, your kids?

“I quit my subscription to The Times a few months ago,” one Lansing resident told us. “The only reason we subscribed was to not miss death notices, but now we can get this on the internet very easily. The Lansing Journal is doing a great service to the Lansing community!”

Businesses too

Businesses, we’ve covered your grand openings, your ribbon-cuttings, your expansions and remodels. We’ve encouraged people to shop local. We’ve shared the histories of established Lansing businesses and celebrated the arrival of new ventures.

How much would you pay for that kind of publicity?

We can’t do it alone

We believe that local residents, businesses, schools, and elected officials have important stories to share. We believe that our community deserves a quality newspaper. And quality is worth investing in.

We need your investment.
