Have you heard the news? There’s a new source for the very latest news in Jefferson County that is not in any way related to the radio station or the newspaper.
I’m talking about Fairbury News Now, and if you’re reading this, congratulations! You are one of the thousands of people who view this website.
Since I started Fairbury News Now in June, there have been many exciting accomplishments: our Facebook page continues to grow and often has the highest number of engagements (likes, comments and shares) among other comparable media sources in the region; in just six months, there have been over 150,000 page views on the website, and that number continues to grow.
We attribute that success to people like you; people who come to the website to browse through the over 550 posts that have been published on the site; people who visit the site to see all of the photos that we take at the events in the area; people who care about the future of Jefferson County and want to see it flourish.
We are grateful for the huge amount of support that we have received from the community. That is meaningful! When I started this business, I saw people who were willing to support this venture because they saw the importance of community news. Again, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone for that support.
It’s 2017, and we are working hard to make this a great year. There are some very exciting changes coming to Fairbury News Now, though I can’t reveal them just yet. You have to stay tuned; let me emphasize this: you do not want to miss this!
