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.
