Let’s support each other

North Carolina journalism got its foothold in New Bern, where the first newspapers and magazines in the state were published in the early 1700s. Today, journalism struggles to survive.

New Bern Post seeks to preserve journalism in New Bern.

New Bern Post started in 2017 as a grassroots news website that provides a voice for people who struggle to be heard. We shed light on difficult subjects that other news outlets in New Bern have neither the time nor inclination to look into. We welcome well-reasoned, well-written commentaries from local readers about topics that are important to the community. We also welcome news releases from local groups, organizations and institutions that provide information of interest to our readers.

Advertising with New Bern Post is an affordable, effective way to connect your business or organization to the people who live and work in New Bern. New Bern Post is a locally owned website that provides news and information about and for New Bern, so your advertising supports local journalism in your community.
