Village Media expands again, this time to Burlington

Unveiled Tuesday morning, joins Village Media's growing network of hyper-local news websites across Ontario

Village Media, the local news company that is a partner in operating this website, has launched another community news outlet in Ontario:

Launched Tuesday morning, BurlingtonToday is Village Media’s 19th owned-and-operated local news website in Ontario, joining nearby sites such as HaltonHillsTodayGuelphToday, CambridgeToday and ThoroldToday.

“We are thrilled to be in Burlington, a place where people care deeply about their community and the news and events happening around them,” says Jeff Elgie, the CEO of Village Media. “We have an amazing team in place and we’re looking forward to showing local residents why they should turn to us first for breaking news and deeper coverage.”

The editor of BurlingtonToday is Brenda Jefferies, a talented, award-winning journalist who has worked in local newsrooms for nearly two decades. Joining her on the team is Tania Theriault, a veteran journalist who recently returned to Canada after years spent reporting overseas, including stints at BBC Radio and the Jersey Evening Post

Born digital, Village Media’s free and accessible websites are designed to be super-fast and easy to navigate, whether you’re on a phone, computer or tablet. More importantly, each site is a trusted source of reliable, fact-based journalism and other important information, including weather reports, obituaries and classifieds.

“When done with purpose and passion, local journalism has the power to connect and inform communities like nothing else can,” says Michael Friscolanti, the Editor-in-Chief of Village Media. “We introduce you to fascinating neighbours and celebrate local triumphs, but we also ask the tough questions and hold decision-makers to account. When local news thrives, everyone benefits.”

An industry leader in local digital media, Village Media strives to strengthen the communities it serves through an integrated approach to community-first journalism, sales and marketing. The company’s growing network of 60 owned-and-operated and partner sites in Canada and the United States operate on an innovative, custom-built content management system developed in-house.
