Making Our Communities Better Places to Live
At Shaw Media we take our Purpose seriously. Our first publication was launched over 150 years ago in Woodstock, Illinois. Since that time we have been dedicated to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve. Whether we are reporting on important local matters, supporting a worthy local cause or developing marketing programs to help local businesses succeed, we exist to fulfill our Purpose. Today, we serve up information in a variety of platforms, including our daily and weekly newspapers, niche publications, Web sites, text, video and a host of other digital endeavors. Regardless of the mode of communication, our commitment to the communities we serve remains unchanged.
