What’sUpNewp was launched on this day six years ago.
Thank you to everyone who has liked, shared, read, commented, and spread the word about what we’re doing. We may not be perfect, we may not be able to cover everything, but we will always strive to stick to why we were founded – to keep people who love Newport (and now Rhode Island) in the know of what’s happening, new, and to do.
Thank you to our past and current advertisers and sponsors, they truly have made what we do possible.
The media scene has changed a lot since March 12, 2012, it certainly keeps us on our toes and we’re always adapting and changing to fulfill what you deserve and need. Thank you for your patience and understanding over the years as we try to be the best we can be.
As a small local independent online news site, we’ve broken some of the biggest stories, have changed the way local media reports and publishes, and have hosted some pretty successful events, political forums, and charitable events. All because of your support.
Huge kudos and thanks to everyone who has contributed to, and continues to contribute to our site. We are blessed to have some of the best writers, photographers, and contributors that can be found.
Our 6th year is going to be an exciting one, look for small and big changes in the coming months.
Thanks for joining us on this crazy and fun ride,
Owner, Editor, and Publisher of What’sUpNewp
