Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

The Bothell-Kenmore Reporter is one in a long line of newspapers that have covered the Northshore area since 1903, with titles ranging from “Independent” to “Citizen” serving these communities before the advent of the Reporter.
In recent years, the once predominantly bedroom communities of Bothell and Kenmore have seen the growth of an economic core centered around biotechnology, computer technology, telecommunications and durable goods. Bothell is home to the University of Washington campus and Cascadia Community College. Kenmore hosts one of the last industrial ports on the northern shore of Lake Washington.

The Bothell Reporter has been a wonderful source of advertising. The coupon as the we run is always a great return for us. Bothell Reporter staff has also been great to work with for the last 8 years.
