Meet The Local.
The Local provides a fresh welcome to Salem and the Mid-Willamette valley, giving readers positive local coverage – unlike you've seen before. Yes it's positive community news, a mix of arts, entertainment and everything mid-Willamette. With a diverse population of over 400,000 people, Marion and Polk counties are about to be showcased with a bright new spotlight. It's a colorful and beautiful place in which we live, full of so much life, adventure and something different every week. The entertainment scene is alive and blooming with young talent. The art culture is world class and draws people from well outside of our market area.
Sports and recreation in the mid-Willamette valley are second to none and will be featured weekly.
While we are all so proud of the example we set as a sustainable community, our government leaders are always busy making Marion and Polk county communities a better place to live. Yes we travel to Portland, Mt. Hood, Bachelor, the Oregon Coast, Bend and Eugene on a regular basis. In The Local we encourage our readers to enjoy the commute, explore the big city and all the wonderful places around Oregon that are within driving distance from the Salem metropolitan area. You'll find a calendar of events well beyond Salem and the Mid-Willamette valley. We don't want you to miss a thing!
