Why advertise with Augusta Good News?

Augusta Good News is a hyperlocal news organization focusing on the people who make the Augusta community a great place to live, work and play. Stories feature people profiles, organizations helping people in our community and events happening in the area. We highlight sports, education, faith, history and arts and entertainment — areas affecting the quality of life in the Augusta area.

 When you advertise at Augusta Good News, you are partnering with us as we help other organizations spread the word about the positive impact they have on the community. Recent stories have included a feature on a fundraiser which raised nearly $15,000 for patients with ALS to help them purchase equipment not covered by insurance, stories on area arts’ organizations (Colton Ballet, Augusta Players and Musical Theatre Workshops) performances, a piece on a local foundation that is fighting for a cure for a rare blood disease, a piece on Youth Leadership Augusta, an article on unique Holocaust remembrance program and a story on the Augusta Mini Theatre’s capital campaign.

Augusta Good News is local news by local people. And it’s a movement that’s gaining momentum as people hear about us.

Founded in November 2022 by Charmain Z. Brackett with 35 years of hometown journalism experience, Augusta Good News can’t cover all the good happening in the area. There are so many more stories to be told, and your advertising dollars help show people what a great community we live in – imperfections and all.
