What’sUpNewp Overview & Audience Snapshot:


What’sUpNewp is dedicated to covering all that’s happening, new and to do in Newport County, from where to enjoy brunch on Sunday to what’s happening at City Hall.  What’sUpNewp combines native content with the most valuable content and information from local, regional and national media sources; we are the number one online source in Newport County for information and our readers are the most informed. Since 2012, the site has become the leading source for tourists and locals to discover “what’s up” around the City-By-The-Sea.

What we do

We publish 5-10 stories a day on, send a handcrafted newsletter each morning at 5:00 a.m. and do original reporting straight to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. More than likely, you can catch someone from our team out and about in The City-By-The-Sea attending an event or supporting our arts and entertainment scene.

How large are we?

  • Monthly Unique Visitors: 45,000+
  • Monthly Page views: 120,000+
  • Daily Newsletter Subscribers: 11,000+
  • Facebook Followers: 20,500+
  • Instagram Followers: 6,700+
  • Twitter Followers: 5,150+


Note: We’re proud of our numbers because unlike other local media companies, we don’t publish national stories (Associated Press, Wire, etc) and we don’t do gimmicky slideshows to juice pageviews. We also have large, growing followings on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
