Why give to the Chico News & Review?

Even before the coronavirus crisis, many local news publishers were financially struggling. Yet the Chico News & Review, with the steady, loyal support of readers, was holding its own.

After the COVID-19 pandemic wiped out advertising and forced a temporary cessation of print publication in March of 2020, the CN&R came back to print that July. For three-and-a-half years the newspaper has persevered, publishing monthly (instead of weekly) with the hope advertisers would eventually return.

Unfortunately, most haven’t, so we found ourselves at a crossroads.
As of January 2024, the CN&R ceased print publication, and transitioned to an online-only paper.

It was thanks to the help of readers and loyal advertisers that we persevered during the pandemic, and now that the CN&R is making a commitment to online publication we’ll need your help to continue providing community journalism in the digital realm.

For now that commitment includes keeping tabs on local government, connecting online to amplify conversations on the issues that impact this community. We will also continue to provide a comprehensive calendar of local events and be the source for arts coverage in Butte County. We’ll keep Best of Chico going, and we hope to be able to revisit some of the CN&R’s past signature promotions (CAMMIES?).

To do that, though, we need your ongoing support. Advertising revenue alone won’t cover the costs of reporting, editing, photography and promoting the paper. We need readers like you, who rely on the CN&R, to support it. By choosing to make a recurring donation every month, you are helping to provide stable, sustainable resources that help the CN&R to plan for consistent local news coverage.

You can rely on us, and we rely on you. Let’s keep the CN&R going. We need all of you to join us online. During this transition (and beyond), the best way to stay in the loop with our digital endeavors is to subscribe to the CN&R newsletter at, and the best way to keep the community journalism alive is by making a donation to the cause.
