I submitted a local news story. When will it be posted?
Several factors impact when a story gets posted, including when it was submitted (the earlier the better) and in what form (press release with photos is best), and how urgent or time-sensitive it is relative to other stories in the "queue," among other factors.   

Holidays, major news stories or events and other factors can delay a story being posted. 

IMPORTANT: We are no longer able to accept stories submitted via Facebook or other social media sites. Please send your tips and stories to

I want my story posted on Corunna Now, Owosso Now, Perry-Laingsburg Pulse and Integrity and Uplift Shiawassee too. How do I do that? 
While stories frequently get "cross-posted" to our other local news sites, if you want it to appear on a specific site, you should be sure to incude that request in your correspondence.

Can I submit a story of local interest? 
Absolutely. We welcome all types of locally-focused contributor content.

Can you add my business to the Business Directory? 
Yes. There is no cost for businesses to be included in the directory. You may submit business name, address, phone number(s), web address and email address as well as business category.

Can you post a story about my business? 
Generally, stories about for-profit ventures such as sales and other special events do not fall within our editorial guidelines for posts. The exception is stories of particular interest to the community, such as the opening or closing of a business. However, advertising partners are always welcome to submit stories about their business for publication.
