We are an independent media company with a small team who works very hard to deliver the very best opportunities to our readers, followers, and advertisers. NYVT Media is a vital fabric of the communities we serve.

NYVT Media originated in 2019 when Capital Region Independent Media, a company founded upon a passion for small community journalism, purchased Manchester Newspapers of Granville, NY. Manchester Newspapers, which had been a family business for over a century, housed 5 newspapers and over 40 specialty publications local to the Southern Adirondacks of New York and the Lakes Region of Vermont.

At NYVT Media, we strive to deliver thoughtful, objective local news every week. You can count on our weekly publications to keep the community connected. We inform our community of important matters that affect society & local government, share heart-warming stories, celebrate heroes & local events, provide classifieds & job information, and entertain our readers. 

In addition to providing vital content editorially, our products are the best source for advertisers that want to reach these areas.  No company can offer more variety in advertising than we do at a much more affordable price than others. We are happy to share our audience with local businesses via weekly print publications, annual specialty publications, and various digital marketing services.

Our mission is to empower and connect our local community through inclusive and informative media content. We strive to amplify diverse voices, foster dialogue, and promote positive change by providing a platform for sharing stories, news, and resources that reflect the unique needs and interests of our community. Through our commitment to quality journalism,
creative expression, and community engagement, we aim to inspire, educate, and entertain, ultimately strengthening the fabric of our local community.
