Introducing Manistee County Press

December 7, 2013

Today is an exciting day. We thought it would be fitting to launch on the same day as the famous Manistee Victorian Sleigh Bell Parade and also the same weekend the historic Vogue Theater re-opens. Our goal is to provide the same high quality service to Manistee that our Mason County readers have come to expect. One of the keys to this is the great relationship we have with our readers. Our launch into Manistee is going to be kind of subtle. Currently we do not have an editor to cover the county, like we do in Mason County. So, we will be relying on the readers to help us with news tips. Our goal is to eventually raise enough revenue through ad sales to hire someone to be our Manistee person.

Like Mason County Press, Manistee County Press will be supported by our advertisers and will be free to the readers. Also, like Mason County Press, we will be utilizing social media to its maximum capacity. Please be sure to check out and “like” and also

This site if for the people of Manistee County. If you have news for us, please feel free to contact Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief at or call/text 231-757-3202. Please be patient as we continue to build content. For alerts, subscribe to either our Facebook or Twitter sites.
