Revitalizing our digital presence at the Quad City Herald


As the CEO & Publisher of Ward Media, the responsibility to nurture and advance the legacy of the Quad City Herald is one I hold dear. Six months ago, our journey took an exciting turn with the goal of enhancing how we connect with you, our readers, through digital innovation. Today, I am thrilled to share with you the culmination of this vision: the launch of the newly redesigned website for the Quad City Herald at

This project was propelled by our dedication to ensuring that our digital platform is as inviting, informative, and interactive as our print publication. The new embodies this ambition, offering a more intuitive, user-friendly experience that brings our community closer to the news that matters most.

A key aspect of the redesign was to simplify the process of becoming a subscriber, making it more accessible for everyone wishing to stay informed about our community's news. For our valued subscribers, managing your subscription has never been easier, thanks to new online functionalities that allow you to update your address, report delivery issues, and manage vacation holds with ease.

Central to our mission is the belief that community journalism is a collaborative endeavor. As such, the revamped website enhances your ability to engage with us. Whether you're looking to submit a letter to the editor, share a news tip, or celebrate life's important moments—from announcing a new addition to your family to remembering a loved one—the Quad City Herald is your platform.

Additionally, we're introducing exclusive online content, or "web extras," that you won't find in our print edition. This includes the ability to place classified ads, submit calendar items, and access an improved E-edition of the newspaper, all designed to enrich your digital experience with the Herald.

The relaunch of is part of a broader initiative to bring you comprehensive, community-focused journalism in a more accessible format. In tandem with this effort, we're excited to announce the launch of NCW News (, a new site dedicated to delivering in-depth news and information from across North Central Washington. This platform reaffirms our commitment to keeping you connected to the broader narratives that shape our region.

The introduction of the redesigned Quad City Herald website and NCW News represents a pivotal moment in our pursuit to serve you with journalism that informs, engages, and unites. As we move forward, I invite you to explore these platforms, engage with our content, and continue to support the vital work of community journalism.
