About

The Shore News Network began in 2011 shortly before Hurricanes Irene and Sandy dealt back to back year after year blows to the Jersey Shore.  It began as a community news portal for authentically local and independent news, but in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it took shape as one of the only online news sources operating and in-contact with local officials.

Before police departments utilized Facebook, most local departments utilized the Shore News Network's "Ocean County Police Blotter" as a means to communicate with our over 1,000,000 readers annually.

Shore News Network saw a void in locally authentic, community based reporting, reporting the news that Jersey Shore residents wanted to see, not news forcefed to residents by corporate agenda driven conglomerates with points of views and values that differ from those at the Jersey Shore.

For 8 years, we have provided free news, free of news paywalls and want to continue this as we expand our services to cover more of what's important at the Jersey Shore.   

We rely 100% on sponsors and donors to keep us going and are looking for supporters to help us get to that next level.  Now, more than ever, the news is dominated by corporate media and government public affairs officials.   At SNN, we report news fairly and accurately and we cover stories the corporate media won't cover and government media operators won't tell.

Risks and challenges

As this is a telethon type kickstarter risks are minimal. All donors will receive proper delivery immediately upon successful funding.
