The Post Publications were founded in 2008

The Post Publications is a network of online news services founded during August 2008 to serve residents of several municipalities and school districts in western Montgomery County PA. They are operated by The Post Publications of Sanatoga PA. Individual editions are:

The company also publishes two Facebook-only editions:

  • The Gilbertsville Post, serving New Hanover and Douglass (Montgomery) townships; and
  • The Mont Clare Post, serving the geographic triangle that includes Mont Clare, Oaks, and Arcola PA, and adjacent Phoenixville in Chester County.

The mission of The Posts, as they are known collectively, is to specialize in intensely local (also known as “hyper-local” or “micro-local”) news coverage similar to that of weekly newspapers, but presented on a daily basis. During 2020, the network is averaging more than 18,000 unique readers monthly.

What we’ve done so far

Columbia Journalism Review, the nation’s oldest media monitoring publication, selected The Sanatoga Post as a feature subject in March 2012 as part of its “Guide To Online News Start-Ups” series. The Sanatoga edition’s daily headline feed, e-mailed to readers, won “All-Star Awards” in 2012, 2011 and 2010, from national e-mail vendor Constant Contact. The Sanatoga, Limerick and Pottstown editions were chosen in 2010 by Reynolds Journalism Institute Fellow Michele McLellan as among the 14 best mini-sites in the U.S. for community news.

The Posts are members of PR Newswire, Newswise, BusinessWire, Virtual Press Office, Globe NewsWire, and Cision PRWeb international distribution systems, and The NewsMarket video distribution network. It also is a member of Local Independent Online News (LION) Publishers, a national association, and the Radio, Television and Digital News Association.

The Posts sell and publish local advertising, and also publish regional and national advertising syndicated through Google Adsense and Media.Net. Their reach, demographic and page view statistics are accredited by the Media Rating Council and conform with Interactive Advertising Bureau standards.
