Posted

O’Rourke Media is thrilled to announce that it will be bringing a comprehensive approach to community reporting to Queen Creek, Arizona, with the new local news website QueenCreekSunTimes.com, launching on Sept. 20.

The family-owned and community-focused company is a top provider of local news, information and impactful journalism in the communities it serves.

With a team of local staff, QueenCreekSunTimes aims to focus on the stories that matter most to the people of Queen Creek while providing a full suite of advertising solutions for local businesses.

From breaking news to municipal updates, sports coverage to human interest features, and the latest business developments and community events, QueenCreekSunTimes will provide the news that matters most to the community.

Continuing to build on the foundation of its existing network of reliable, credible and timely local news sites, QueenCreekSunTimes marks the 18th owned and operated site for O’Rourke Media Group.

QueenCreekSunTimes will join Village Media’s Publisher Services Program, which will provide the technology powering the new website, back-office services and audience growth services. Village Media’s industry-leading platform, Villager, is specifically designed to match the complex needs of digital news publishers, their readers and advertisers, and their sales and editorial playbook has generated great success for its network of local news sites. The Google News Initiative is sponsoring QueenCreekSunTimes into the new program.

Leading up to the official launch, O’Rourke is in the process of hiring the local QueenCreekSunTimes team, establishing partnerships with local businesses, and gathering news and information to keep the Queen Creek community informed.
