Village Media expands to Pelham

Village Media announced earlier this week it has added another Ontario news outlet to its roster:

PelhamToday is Village Media’s 20th owned-and-operated local news website in Ontario — and the third Village site in Niagara Region, joining ThoroldToday and Niagara-on-the-Lake Local.

“We are thrilled to be in Pelham, a place where people care deeply about their community and the news and events happening around them,” says Jeff Elgie, the CEO of Village Media. “We have an amazing team in place and we’re looking forward to showing local residents why they should turn to us first for breaking news and deeper coverage in Central Niagara.”

For longtime readers of The Voice — the weekly newspaper that served Pelham for 25 years before printing its final edition last month — this new website will feel very familiar: the team of reporters, editors and columnists who produced the paper will be delivering the same quality local journalism at PelhamToday.

Along with Editor Dave Burket, the roster of writers includes Don Rickers, John Chick, Helen Tran, and Brian Green, as well as columnists John Swart, Rev. Michael Coren, Larry Cote, and Rob Weatherby.
