Editorial by Lisa Mitchell New website brings readers county news

Dear Readers;

Berks-Mont Newspapers - our group of weekly newspapers The Boyertown Area Times, The Southern Berks News, The Hamburg Area Item, The Kutztown Area Patriot and Tri County Record - will be launching a new website design that combines all of our news onto one home page. This will bring readers all their county news into one place.

The new website is scheduled to go live Nov. 21.

Id like to assure readers that while the home pages will feature a mix of news from all of our papers, you will still be able to find your papers news. Each paper will have their own section on the website. Find a link to each of the papers at the top of the home page.

The benefits of this new website is that all your Berks County news will be easy to find all in one place and the news will change often so there will ways be something new to read. The goal of the new site is to make it easier for online readers to navigate. Meanwhile you will still access to your own local news, focused on your community.


Our goal as your news source is to provide you with the latest local news, online, in print, on social media.

Lisa Mitchell is managing editor for Berks-Mont Newspapers and editor of The Kutztown Area Patriot.
