Tierra Media Group, which publishes the alternative weekly Oklahoma Gazette, will launch a free hyperlocal weekly for Eastern Oklahoma County next March.
In its announcement, Tierra said the weekly paper, to be called EastWord, will publish Wednesdays and be distributed free through newsracks in Midwest City, Del City, Choctaw and Nicoma Park areas.
“Readers can expect high-quality local news in a great-looking format that will be convenient to pick up and interesting to read,” Publisher Bill Bleakley said in a statement. “We hope to make EastWord the very best source for local information.”
Tierra Media Group’s former online editor, Stefanie Brickman, has been named as editor of EastWord.
