Celebrating Four Years of Hyperlocal Excellence

June 2024 — This June, Delaware LIVE is celebrating its fourth anniversary, delivering daily hyperlocal news to the First State. Born out of a vibrant, digital newsroom in Kent and Sussex Counties, Delaware LIVE was created to meet the increasing demand from Delawareans for more comprehensive access to news about their schools, lawmakers, decision-makers, and local businesses. In a short span of four years, Delaware LIVE has expanded its footprint significantly, incorporating local news outlets such as Milford LIVE, Town Square Live, Chadds Ford Live, and Delaware Live Sports. Monthly, over 200,000 Delawareans actively interact with us through our digital newsrooms, weekly emails, social media platforms, and live streaming services.

Why Local News Matters 

Local newsrooms are the most trusted source for credible information for residents, according to a national Gallup survey in 2023 of 5,000 adults.  Local newspapers were rated as the “most reliable and trusted media source” of original reporting, more than television, radio, and social media. As a team, Delaware LIVE continues to develop a robust newsroom that relies on traditional journalism, unbiased reporting, and reliable sources. In 2024, Delaware LIVE received a high credibility rating for “proper sourcing and a clean fact-check record” and a least bias rating for “reasonably balanced story selection and minimal editorializing of content” from a nationally recognized Media Bias Fact Check independent review. Delaware LIVE reporters won 10 awards, including five first-place ones, in the 2024 Delaware Press Association 2024 Professional Communications Contest.

We live, work, and play in this community, and we can make it happen thanks, in part, to our advertisers who support the same idea.
