Reno’s Online News & Events Source

This Is Reno is your source for daily Reno news and events for Reno, Sparks, the Truckee Meadows and beyond. We were founded in 2009 and are locally owned and operated. Meet the team here.

We began with a question: Could a group of volunteer media professionals, collaborate and create an online news media outlet to fill the gaps left by downsized newsrooms? The answer, we quickly discovered, was yes.

We are a member of Investigative Reporters & Editors.

Our site launched with an exclusive interview with Thomas “Lt. Dangle” Lennon about the ending of Comedy Central’s “Reno 911.” Site stats started strong when Lennon tweeted to his thousands of followers our breaking interview. Locals took note.

We have since grown to become a Reno news leader and influencer. We are Reno’s only locally owned and operated online news and events source. Our focus is on our community. We reach thousands of Reno-area readers every day on thisisreno.com and our social channels.

We are frequently news breakers, we often cover what other media do not and we offer a truly local voice to Reno news and events via our social media, podcast, website and our e-newsletter.

This Is Reno offers effective and competitive advertising. If you need event promotions, advertising or want to see your news story reach thousands in the Reno area, please consider advertising with us.

Thanks for visiting.
