“Our statistics continue to bear out that the need and desire for local news is strong and continues to grow. While other media publications are reducing their local news coverage or eliminating it entirely, TAPinto owner/publishers are filling that void by providing daily original local news to keep our communities informed and involved," said TAPinto CEO and Publisher Michael Shapiro.
