Local journalism makes our community better.
Why become a member?
As a locally owned, independent news outlet, we are proud to invest in our community and redefine what local news looks like. How? For starters, we hire a new journalist for every 100 subscribers. The other guys aren't doing that..
What else you say? Well, you shouldn't have to login to read an article either.. That's just silly. You have our promise that our website will always be free, no paywall to worry about.

Why buy a membership if the website is free?
Our ragtag team of reporters and photographers love what we do, and want to share it with the world! Kinda like Patreon, our membership is setup to reward people who support local journalism.
Shared membership benefits
Owned by the same parent organization, Hugg Media Group, Berks Weekly and Reading Magazine both share membership benefits, including Newsroom Meetup events, coupons, and photography sessions. No need to buy two separate memberships. Buying one from either website provides access to member benefits of both websites.
