Support Franklin County Free Press


For the past twenty years the local news across the country has been on the decline. Our mission is to revitalize the local news of Franklin County.

As our local newspapers change and downsize, our local news is disappearing fast.

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

The local news has been on a decline not because of the advent of the internet but because of the consolidation of local news by national corporations.

Because generating news is labor intensive and the need for corporate news to reduce costs the local news is the first item on the chopping block.

With that understanding we have assembled a group of local reporters, photographers, graphic designers and IT team to form our own local news outlet.
