When the last local newspaper in the Niceville Area closed for good at the end of 2021, Christopher Saul knew that citizens still needed local news and information. He founded Mid Bay News with one goal - to keep the community connected and informed about everything going on, from town hall to the sports fields of the Twin Cities of Niceville and Valparaiso and the runways and test facilities of Eglin Air Force Base. After all, studies show that when people don't have access to a local news source about their community, governments become more wasteful, and residents lose pride in their city, leading to further economic decline.
We want to change the way the news business works by shifting power from consolidated corporations to smaller, locally-based operations which have the trust and the ear of the people they write for. For too long, corporate news has prioritized making money for shareholders at the expense of the citizens that need a watchdog. For many local newspapers and television stations - the economic reality put in place by the news giants has meant joining up with a vast, faceless network or folding under their weight.
It doesn't have to be this way - and you can help us change the situation.
If you support that mission - we need your help. Download our app today and let's put a dent in the corporate news that divides us and put together a local news infrastructure that unites us for stronger towns and cities.
