These are exciting times for The Bellingham Herald as we advance from simply publishing a newspaper to delivering the best in local news and information, regardless of whether you're reading it in the paper, on a computer screen or on your cell phone.

We're committed to having a "web first" culture, breaking the story online. We give you enhanced content, audio, video and photo galleries and the ability for you to give us your thoughts and opinions. We have the power of our newsroom, seven days a week, working to deliver Whatcom County’s best local sites.

This is a two-way conversation and it's only just begun. We strive to make our newspaper and website a reflection of this incredible place we call home. We strongly believe that investing in our community is a part of our responsibility to both our readers and our advertising customers. Thanks to the support we receive from you, we are able to continue the tradition of giving back.

Far from simply selling you some advertising, we want to be your media consultant. We want to work with you to help you succeed.
