The Posts were founded in 2008

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. For the 7-month period ending July 31, 2021, The Posts’ network serves a Google Analytics-verified audience averaging more than 37,000 unique active readers.

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 registered with PR Newswire, Newswise, BusinessWire, Globe NewsWire, and The NewsMarket international distribution systems.

The content of the Sanatoga edition is syndicated for national distribution by Google News and NewsBank Inc.

The Posts sell and publish local advertising, and also publish regional and national advertising syndicated through Google Adsense and Brandcaster.
