We Are “The Voice of Pennsylvania” (BBC News, 2006)
Community: As a regional publication, our focus is on the small towns and neighborhoods of Westmoreland County and the surrounding Laurel Highlands. We promise to feature the people, places and things that shape our lives here – past, present and future. Over the past several years, the Laurel Mountain Post has generated a sense of ownership among readers who turn the pages and see stories by and about their friends, relatives and neighbors – and created a credible environment not driven by profits and corporate ownership of the media. We will continue that rare and valuable tradition of truly publishing a magazine by the people, for the people.
Faith: A stalwart belief in positive and encouraging ideas continues to guide our editorial process. Our writers will seek to represent the unique and meaningful qualities found in our everyday lives – aspects cached in both the extraordinary as well as the commonplace.
Cultivation: The Laurel Mountain Post will support community goals by developing new partnerships, implementing a matching grant program for nonprofit advertising, and participating in volunteer groups. Giving back will be our priority, rather than an afterthought.
Staff: Most of our writers are not professional reporters, but accomplished local practitioners with years of experience in their respective fields who bring credibility and personality to every article.
We publish a printed magazine every month to an audience of over 10,000 readers in western Pennsylvania – and every story begins at home.
