As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rapidly evolve all across the globe, the North Kitsap Herald, Central Kitsap Reporter, Port Orchard Independent and Kingston Community News must also adapt in order to ensure the continuation of high quality local journalism into the future.

Significantly decreased advertising revenue, directly resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, has forced Sound Publishing to make the incredibly difficult decision to temporarily reduce staffing and suspend print publication of its free Kitsap County newspapers. In the weeks to come, you will still be able to follow local news stories and breaking developments as they happen, here at KitsapDailyNews.com.

Take care and be well,

Nick Twietmeyer

editor, North Kitsap Herald
