The content, engagement, and revenue platform for the next generation
Extend your reach
Engage your audience across the entire digital spectrum—web, mobile, apps, OTT, podcasts, social media, email, distributed platforms—with our complete content management ecosystem.
Your site, your way
With our built-in drag-and-drop designer, it's simple to change the look and functionality of your website, mobile site, and even your native app—no programming required. Staffers with coding skills have the flexibility to make deeper changes to your site's underlying script and CSS.
And our article design tools make it easy to create beautiful, engaging articles—complete with videos, photos, multimedia galleries, and more.
Focus on journalism, not maintenance
Some vendors shackle you with systems that are rigid and hard to manage. Our cutting-edge cloud-based solutions free you from the headache of maintaining complicated hardware and software, so you can concentrate on what matters: creating great content, and deepening your connection to your campus community.
Future-proof your newsroom
Because your newsroom changes by the semester, we offer FREE training, support, and documentation to help your new staffers get up-to-speed fast.
And with more than 1,700 newspaper, broadcast, magazine, web-native, and college media sites, experience with TownNews gives students a extra edge when they hit the job market.
