The news itself speaks louder than words when there are accidents, fires and police news to report to our local communities.
But we’re also here to tell you the good news about what’s going on in the tri-county area — from features about people you know, to stories about our growing communities and what’s going on in our local municipalities, businesses and schools.
“Our job is always to inform, educate and entertain you with news, headlines, photos, videos and advertising,” said Editor Sharon Stone. “Behind the scenes is a group of talented individuals who work together to bring you the news, not only on our traditional printed pages, but also on our website — tctimes.com which is updated regularly.”
While the wide-ranging variety of news that occurs in a community doesn’t change much from year to year, the way we deliver it to you has changed dramatically over the past decade.
Our Editorial Department includes a team of reporters and photographers who are literally on-call, 24/7, in order to report all the area news to you in a timely and thorough manner. We also have expert videographers and social media ‘whiz kids’ who keep our online readers in-the-know through tctimes.com. That means you’ll get coverage of local news 24/7 on our website, as well as Wednesday and Sunday when the print editions of the Times are published and delivered to your home.
“The Tri-County Times is not just a newspaper — we are literally your connection to your community. We keep the public informed and educated on municipal and school news, as well as all manner of events that occur in our area on a daily basis. Our research helps to keep our neighborhoods safe, our schools thriving and our communities strong,” said General Manager Jennifer Ward.
Our ever-growing Marketing Department provides professional products and services such as digital, social media and video to enhance any print advertisement. Our marketing team works closely with area businesses to develop personalized marketing campaigns to fit every budget. Our Classified Department offers an array of products for in-home businesses, as well as solutions for residents with an item for sale.
“The communities within our circulation area are unique and the best way for businesses to target their prospective customers directly is through the community newspaper,” said Marketing Director Terese Allen. “An advertisement in the Times is equivalent to going house to house, knocking on over 19,000 front doors, to announce your business is having a mattress sale.”
Members of our talented Composition Department bring their top-notch designs to life in print, helping advertisers get their messages to the public. They also put all these words and photos together in a creative way that has helped earn the Tri-County Times “Newspaper of the Year” several times.
The staff at the Times thanks you for being a part of preserving and protecting the future of our homes, our families and our way of life.
