Your membership in the Half Moon Bay Review sustains local journalism.
Yes! I want award-winning local news and features
The Half Moon Bay Review punches above its weight. Despite our size, we consistently win awards from the California Newspaper Publishers Association, including "Best Weekly" for many recent years. We work closely with the journalism department at Stanford and other local universities to mentor, intern and recruit top talent. We are one of the few small papers with a dedicated photojournalist. Many stories are best told with pictures. Under our new management group, we are interacting with nonprofit and for-profit journalism groups around the world to keep improving our print and online editions.
Yes! I want coverage of local sports and events
These are the kinds of stories where people really DO like to see themselves in the paper. Our youth sports teams get great local coverage. We probably receive more feedback on sports coverage than any other area. We support the high school newspaper in many ways, including mailing a copy of Paw Print each month to our subscribers inside the Review.
Yes! I want to shine a light on local issues and government
According to one recent study, communities that lose their local paper end up spending about 10% more each year on equivalent public services. We are there at the city council meetings and other important events to shed light on the issues of the day and help all citizens and residents play their important role in our democracy.
Yes! I want to support our free press
The First Amendment emphasizes the importance of the role a free press plays in any democracy. Of course, nothing is free. We need your support to keep local journalism economically viable in a time when the internet has caused a sea change in advertising and subscription behavior.
Yes! I want the best ads and info from local businesses and restaurants
Our local businesses depend on the Review to connect with local residents and visitors. Our high-quality magazines help portray the best of the Coastside every month.
