The Delaware State News has served Dover and Downstate Delaware since 1953.
More than any other medium, local residents rely on the seven-day morning newspaper, print and digital, for news, advertising, and information.
Community service is the driving force behind our newspaper and web site.
Whether it’s covering local government, promoting the efforts of a service club, or highlighting a student of the month – everything we do is aimed at reinforcing and strengthening the bonds that connect our citizens to their communities.
We are a nonpartisan news organization that informs our citizens about issues that affect their lives, their families and their neighborhoods.
Readers rely on us for unbiased coverage of local news, but they also use our products to connect and engage with their fellow citizens. Robust opinions platforms, comprehensive community calendars and a rich assortment of neighborhood news all combine to celebrate the rich fabric of our communities.
Our unique company structure is designed to maintain our independence. We are owned by a nonprofit trust. There are no shareholders, no dividends are paid, and all after-tax profits are reinvested in our journalistic mission.
We rely on a combination of business advertising and subscription revenue to underwrite our print and digital publications and our journalism.
