Overview

Maine NewsSimply is for people who love Maine, live in Maine, vacation in Maine and whose soul is in Maine. In the company’s eleven month lifespan, it has already taken bold steps to reinvent and reinvigorate local media and news in an unforgiving economy.

NewsSimply’s stated goal is straightforward enough: statewide news presented simply. Yet what’s left out of the slogan means just as much. In an industry mired down by large institutions and tradition, Maine NewsSimply chooses to be a lightweight, flexible company that uses unexpected and engaging methods of communication to build a readership that likes their news in one spot, presented simply.

The NewsSimply flagship website, www.mainenewssimply.com is rapidly becoming the state’s primary hub for news, compiling close to 50 local news sources and presenting them in a fresh, clean, and lightweight design that is both compelling and easy to read.
