Shore News Network

The Shore News Network is a news collective that ties global news providers with fair and balanced local community news at the Jersey Shore.  In operation since 2008, the Shore News Network is an open-public news source that allows news content creators at the Jersey Shore a place to safely publish their news in a manner that is free of editorial distortion.

In addition to our news wire feeds and organic local news content, Shore News Network provides local coverage across the Jersey Shore.

News at the Shore News Network is curated through local authoritative sources including police departments, town governments, school districts, chambers of commerce and pooled together as a cohesive media unit.   Shore News Network is also a member of the New Jersey News Commons and RepubHub.

We are a very strong supporter of decentralized news publication and grass roots, community based reporting.   Unlike the mainstream media, we provide fair and balanced coverage to our readers.
