Having a news source to call your own is part of your local identity. It’s the conversation starter between strangers and friends at coffee shop. It’s where your sons, daughters, nieces and nephews are featured for winning the big game. It’s where you announce the birth of a child and the passing of a loved one.

And so, we are excited to announce that OrilliaMatters.com launched on January 8th, 2018 with familiar names including:

- John Hammill - Publisher
- Dave Dawson - Community Editor
- Nathan Taylor - Regional Reporter
- Nicole Parkes - Regional Sales Manager

Your local news source IS the essence of your community, and local news is what we do. And we do it differently.

We’re Village Media and we believe that locally driven news is essential to communities. That’s why we’ve started or helped launch over 10 digital news sites in communities just like yours within the past few years.

We focus on featuring local stories written by local journalists in the communities we serve. Our sites offer weather, events, obituaries, and a wide range of community information. We are proud members of the cities where we operate.

Check out our other community websites and see why Google has named Village Media’s platforms “newsrooms of the future”.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Where do I fit into all of this?”

First:

We ask that you follow us on Facebook, Twitter - or subscribe to our daily headlines email, where you'll receive local headlines delivered right to your inbox, FREE!  And visit often - we update our site many times throughout the time.

Second:
For a small monthly pledge, you can save local news and keep jobs in your community – that costs less than a cup of coffee for you and a friend. Even better, 100% of funds pledged go directly towards hiring local journalists to keep jobs in your city and to drive news that connects with your community.
