Can you believe it’s been 11 years since What’sUpNewp first launched on March 12, 2012? Time truly flies! Our readership has grown exponentially since those early days when we pretty much just focused on what was up at bars and restaurants in Newport.

We now publish more than 550 stories to our website every month, while nearly 27,000 people now wake up to our newsletter every morning, and a whopping 160,000 individuals visit our website every month. Our contributing team is now made up of 18 talented, experienced, and dedicated journalists, photographers, and writers!

Throughout these years, we’ve been passionate about showcasing the stories, personalities, and businesses that make Newport, Aquidneck Island, Newport County, and Rhode Island shine. None of this would have been possible without the unwavering support of our readers, supporters, local advertisers, and our amazing team of contributors.

As we celebrate this milestone, we invite you to join our growing community of readers who support What’sUpNewp. For as little as $8 per month, you can help support our local, independent newsroom, and our ongoing commitment to continue to cover more of the stories you care about by growing our team of talented writers and experienced journalists.

We’re incredibly grateful for your support and eagerly look forward to discovering what the next eleven years hold for our publication and for our vibrant community!

Warm regards,

Ryan Belmore, Owner & Publisher
