It’s our birthday: My Buckhannon turns four

Are you tired of waiting for old, dated Upshur County news? Would you like local breaking news as it happens? In-depth stories that showcase Buckhannon and surrounding communities?   

Today, September 27, we’re celebrating four years of My Buckhannon, the only local daily online news site. We tell YOUR stories; thank you for reading them – nearly 2 million times in the past year! It’s a jaw-dropping number that makes us so appreciative of the community in which we live and work. 

My Buckhannon has it all – breaking news, local government, obituaries, help wanted notices, photo galleries, and daily sports coverage of your Buccaneers and Bobcats. 

As we head into year five, we’ve got some exciting changes coming up that will allow more readers to experience our unique local content, while continuing to provide great value to our members. For less than 25 cents a day, My Buckhannon premium members wake up to new, local, staff-written stories 365 days a year. It’s totally worth it! 

We’re also making a few advertising changes to simplify our pricing and help local businesses reach a large, local audience easier than ever before. If you’re interested in advertising, give us a shout!

Thanks for four great years. Cheers to you, Upshur County!
