WNPA’s Sustaining Investors

We gratefully acknowledge our Sustaining Investors, companies that have made the most significant investments in support of Washington Newspaper Publishers Association.


Founded in 1987, Sound Publishing, Inc. is the largest community news organization in Washington State. Today, more people read Sound Publishing community newspapers than traditional dailies in the markets we cover. Our titles deliver relevant, local news that directly affects the lives of those who raise families and work in the 86 communities we serve. Reader engagement is enhanced by our local newsrooms’ dedication to our “digital first” philosophy. Our printing, distribution, circulation, websites and readership studies are audited by the Certified Audit of Circulations (CAC) and Audit Bureau (ABC) to provide an accurate picture of each publication’s market penetration and reach. Sound Publishing delivers community.  More information about Sound Publishing is available at
