Sooke News Mirror launches new digital subscriptions with exclusive benefits

Readers offered exclusive benefits

Truth. Clarity. Community.

It’s what we do.

Since 1973, the Sooke News Mirror has provided trusted news and informative content for locals to enjoy and stay up to date.

Today, the News Mirror lands on 5,800 doorsteps every week and is viewed more than two million times on computer or mobile screens throughout the Island every month, bringing the most need-to-know local news to community members.

Whether it’s breaking news, community information, entertainment, opinion or local sports, we pride ourselves in bringing the most relevant news to our readers.

Sparking dinnertime conversations.

Sparking action.

Sparking change and celebration.

The core of local journalism goes beyond simply chronicling all that Sooke has been and all that it will become – it’s asking the tough questions along the way. We’re proud that we hold community leaders accountable to the people we serve.

The News Mirror team has been here when it matters most, especially when the news gets tough, filtering through the noise to bring you the raw and the real.

And now, the News Mirror is entering into a new chapter. By launching an added-value subscription program that provides exclusive content and premium benefits to readers, the community has the opportunity to directly support local journalists who live and work here, in the town they serve.

“Engaged local journalism is an essential democratic force and one of the key building blocks to developing an inclusive community that works for everyone,” Randy Blair, Black Press Media’s chief operating officer, said.

“The value-added subscription program is a way for individuals to assist their local community news media in their efforts to give voice to those individuals and organizations who are working to build a better tomorrow for all.”

Digital subscriptions offer the flexibility for each customer to hand-select a plan that fits their readership needs. Added benefits include exclusive newsletters delivered right to your inbox, community forums to connect with the news team, unlimited access to our provincial news website Today in BC, as well as puzzles, crosswords and premium contests.

In addition to local content, you will also be able to enjoy reading breaking news from around the province and across Canada, brought to you by one of the largest networks of journalists in North America.

Most importantly, by subscribing, readers engage with and directly support the entire News Mirror team.

“We are so very proud to fulfill our commitments to the community by supporting local grass-roots organizations, charities and non-profits with their projects, dreams and causes,” publisher Rod Sluggett said.

“As we continue to support our community, we want to thank you personally for all of your steadfast support of local journalism.”

Our digital subscription program launches Tuesday, Dec. 21.
