Welcome to Washington's largest community news organization


Founded in 1987, Sound Publishing, Inc. is the largest community news organization in Washington State. Today, more people read Sound Publishing community newspapers than traditional dailies in the markets we cover.

Our titles deliver relevant, local news that directly affects the lives of those who raise families and work in the 100+ communities we serve. Reader engagement is enhanced by our local newsrooms' dedication to our “digital first” philosophy.

Our printing, distribution, circulation, websites and readership studies are audited by the Certified Audit of Circulations (CAC) and Alliance for Audited Media (AAM) to provide an accurate picture of each publication’s market penetration and reach.

Sound Publishing delivers community.

  • Community, delivered. In print, online.

    Our household distribution model has brought back the "paper carrier", teaching responsibility to young entrepreneurs in the communities they serve. Our route carriers deliver to the front door, not the driveway.

  • Smartphones, smart ads

    Our smartphone apps keep readers completely up-to-date on all the local news, sports, opinion and business information. New mobile-optimized ad units allow readers to interact with your ad in ways that make sense on their smartphone.

  • Reliability

    Our Everett plant is located on the Boeing Everett Plant power grid, which has the highest priority for power restoration. In the unlikely event of a power failure, our plant is fully backed up by two diesel generators capable of powering the entire facility.
