Dear reader,

As 2018 comes to an end, your local media organization is looking forward to a new chapter.

As of Dec. 28, five of Sound Publishing’s newspapers in South King County — Federal Way Mirror, Auburn Reporter, Kent Reporter, Renton Reporter, Covington-Maple Valley-Black Diamond Reporter and Tukwila Reporter — will operate in a new office at 1010 S. 336th St., Suite 330, Federal Way, WA 98003.

We considered a location that would allow our newspapers to effectively and efficiently serve these South King County communities while also providing realistic commutes for our employees. All phone numbers will remain the same for each publication and employee.

More importantly, the new office will help us maximize resources and strengthen our overall coverage in South King County. Sound Publishing is committed to informing and serving your community for years to come. Thank you for joining us on this mission, and thank you for supporting local journalism.

Sincerely,

Polly Shepherd, Publisher

Andy Hobbs, Editorial Director
