Our mission has long been to provide you with the very best community journalism.
When our sister newspaper, The Suffolk Times, was first printed in 1857, its inaugural editorial said it aimed to be, “above all else, a good newspaper.” READ
As we announced recently, the newsstand price of the Riverhead News-Review and The Suffolk Times will change from $1 to $1.50 beginning with the June 2 issue.
Traditionally, we’ve used the cost of a cup of coffee as a guideline for our cover price. Yet, despite increasing coffee prices, we’ve held the line on the cost of our newspapers for the last 15 years. Now, however, the time has come.
This change will help us continue providing the award-winning community journalism you’ve come to expect from us. We appreciate your ongoing support and thank you for reading the Riverhead News-Review and The Suffolk Times.
For more than 100 years The News-Review has prided itself on being your trusted source for local news.

have spent significant time trying to find a balance in how to best
serve our readers in a new digital age.
It is with great pleasure that we announce our recent decision to make our website free for all to enjoy.

news. While you have remained loyal to our weekly print product, we
understand there is a daily need to keep up with what is going on in our
constantly evolving communities.

commitment to expand our presence on the web. We recently began
publishing daily newsletters that serve as mini-newspapers for our
online readership to enjoy.
We’ve also revamped our commenting and
social networking software to make our site more interactive, so you,
too, can share your voice with the community. We are planning many more
updates and improvements in the coming weeks.
Now by giving you the
ability to access our sites free of charge, we hope you continue to
enjoy The News-Review in ways never before possible.
We look forward to being your trusted source for local news for the next 100 years and beyond.
