The Gridley Herald is a community-oriented newspaper produced and distributed to serve readers primarily in Gridley and its surrounding areas. We will bring our readers general news stories, local business and real estate news, special announcements, news on events, local commentaries and editorials, church news, entertainment listings, seniors news, local sports, volunteer news, syndicated columnists, cartoons and games.
Our distribution is by U.S. Mail, home delivery and approximately 200 locations, (i.e. newsstands, retailers and restaurants). We believe we must provide the best possible distribution to serve our advertisers, helping them to thrive within these communities.
My background in publishing includes over twenty-five years of management in newspaper and magazine publishing. Our contributors all have publishing experience, which will help us to better serve our advertisers and readers. We believe this will drive the Messenger to become a solid publishing choice within these communities.
If there is ever a problem, either with an advertisement, a story or editorial, or even distribution, it will be handled promptly and courteously, as customer service is what keeps people loyal to a local publication.
I personally hope you will invest in our publication, either by advertising or by subscribing. Your support is what makes it possible to give our community what it really wants in a hometown newspaper.
