We need your help


Thank you for being a regular This Is Reno reader.

You may have heard: journalism across the country is in serious trouble (Brookings). Newspapers are struggling to survive, and traditional news sources are facing severe cuts (Politico).

The good news: News websites like This Is Reno are picking up the slack. Local, online news operations, with their talented and eager journalists, are helping fill gaps created in growing news deserts across America.

But we can’t do this alone. This Is Reno relies on advertising income and supporting members to publish original reporting online each day.

That’s where you come in. For less than the price of one latte per month, a This Is Reno subscription helps us continue to produce fresh stories and to be less reliant on advertising.

I hope you will consider becoming a subscriber by joining here: https://thisisreno.com/subscribe-for-full-site-access/

A subscription purchased today will be at our introductory rate of $6/month (if purchasing 12 months in advance), which we introduced at the beginning of the year. We will be moving to a new system, and a higher rate, in 2020.

Subscribers also get access to all of our articles, including the more than 150 articles – stories often only covered by This Is Reno – now available only to our subscribers.

Your subscription means that you are contributing to growing quality, award-winning, independent journalism focused on our community.

On behalf of the team here at This Is Reno, we hope you enjoy your holiday season.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
