The Local Reporter was founded in September 2019 as a non-profit, online newspaper by residents of Orange County who, after the loss of The Chapel Hill News, felt strongly that Chapel Hill and Southern Orange County deserved to have a reliable community news source. From the beginning, we have depended solely on reader’s donations and sustainer donors to fund our newspaper. That is why we write to you today.

Since our founding, The Local Reporter has:

Some notable examples of our recent local coverage include:

We are proud of our online newspaper and all that we have accomplished over these last four years in bringing you local, reliable news, without requiring a paywall or cluttered with distracting advertising. We hope you have enjoyed reading it, too!

The Local Reporter is funded entirely with donations by readers like you to keep it going. We greatly appreciate the over 500 donors who have given generously because they recognize the need for more local news coverage in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and southern Orange County. 

If you enjoy reading our articles and see the value of continuing this local Orange County news resource for many years to come, please consider donating to The Local Reporter . Your tax-deductible contribution will help us to continue bringing news and information right to your inbox every week and 24/7 online. 

Thank you sincerely for your support — we couldn’t do it without you! 🙂
