The Reporter Turns 11

by Bobby Blair
May 31, 2019

The late Bill Tobin and Ann Talbot would be proud, the Holliston Reporter lives on for another day/year. There was no real business plan eleven years ago when four retirees schemed to put together their own hyper-local online newspaper. It was a pull yourself up by the boot straps type of operation and some how it worked. The Reporter was an outgrowth of a similiar hyper-local, HollistonNetNews which was started by Mary Greendale in 2005. The Reporter had several changes in 2018/19 with long-time publisher Paul Saulnier and a short time later, Bobby Blair taking back seats in the operation of the paper. Relative newcomers Yvette and Chris Cain from CT have taken on the roles as co-publishers.

From our new publishers:

Our daily habits have been altered since we assumed the helm of the Holliston Reporter, from wake up to bedtime.  Our community service to each of you has brought us new routines and activities, and has permitted us to develop new skills.  Although our days look different than they did a scant five months ago, we still meet each other in our front room in the late afternoon to review our day and make plans for tomorrow.

In the coming weeks, our plans include eliciting more information from you, our readers, about our content.  We want our publication to be interesting and useful to you.  A new “look” to the HR with a more publisher- and reader-friendly platform is on our to-do list.  And we are testing the waters with social media. 

Remaining the same will be our motto: “Local news by local people.”  As a hyper-local news provider, we strive to keep your news relevant and useful because it’s about you, your neighbors, and your town.

You must all know by now that we are both huge fans of Holliston.  We’d love to hear how our plans and ideas are working for you.  Anytime.  Just email us at: Pubs.holliston.reporter@gmail.com
