SWNA launches online hub for community news

The Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association (SWNA) has developed a new website that showcases community news from across the province. MySaskNews.com features the latest headlines and local news stories from SWNA-member newspapers. The site receives financial support from the Canada Periodical Fund through the Department of Canadian Heritage.

SWNA Executive director Steve Nixon describes the site as a unique community news initiative. “Whether a Saskatchewan resident or ex- pat, visitors to the site will be able to stay connected with their communities on a truly local level via the relevant content provided by our community newspapers in the province. We are proud to offer an expanded and collective local news presence to the public at large”.
