Two Valley entrepreneurs have formed a strategic alliance to publish a newspaper to serve the north valley.
Kathleen Sterling, publisher of Valley News Group, and Miri Rossitto, CEO of COWE Communications will publish the brand new North Valley News serving Porter Ranch, Northridge, Granada Hills and Chatsworth.
The premier edition of the bimonthly newspaper will hit online and on the street March 19.
This all-local community paper will cover the politics, people, business, real estate and entertainment news of the north valley.
“We have seen the continued success of Valley News Group’s local papers in the West Valley and are taking the same hyper-local approach to readers in the North Valley,” said Sterling.
Regular contributions will be included from City Councilman John Lee, State Senator Henry Stern, the chambers of commerce and neighborhood councils.
Special sections will include a comprehensive community calendar, a “People in the News” column, business, real estate, health and entertainment pages, and an editorial page discussing the pertinent issues of the community.
“The way that community papers make local impacts is only getting greater and it is an honor to be serving tens of thousands of our neighbors,” said Rossitto.
The new paper will publish the first and third Fridays of the month, with 20,000 online readers and 5,000 newspapers delivered to high traffic points including malls, hospitals, markets, banks, real estate offices and more.
Sterling has 40 years experience in the newspaper business and is publisher of the Warner Center News, Valley Vantage, Calabasas Enterprise and Encino Enterprise.
Rossitto is CEO of COWE Communications, specializing in business and marketing strategy, branding and rebranding, public relations and publicity, social media marketing, graphic design, website development and management.
