Kitsap News Group

Kitsap News Group is a division of Sound Publishing, which is home to some of the oldest, most trusted community newspapers in Western Washington, like the Port Orchard Independent, founded in 1890, and the Whidbey News-Times, first published in 1891; and much newer, suburban voices like the Issaquah Reporter. Market by market these are the leading newspapers in their respective communities.

We provide readers a superior blend of local news, sports and community coverage recognized with numerous editorial awards every year. We invest in relevant, quality journalism that impacts the lives of our readers and the communities we serve. This commitment is complemented by award winning photography and marketing partnerships.
