Welcome to Examiner+

A new approach to local journalism from a trusted source

Join other area residents who have discovered Examiner+, a new digital newsmagazine delivering quality reporting on news, issues, and lifestyle topics relevant to life in and around Westchester (or “upstate” as we’re affectionately but erroneously called by our friends in the city.)

As an established group of trusted local newspapers, Examiner Media’s roots and connections run long and deep in our community. We’re looking to leverage those local connections and expertise to expand our coverage beyond the traditional “hard” news stories found in our print papers.

What we do

Examiner+ offers in-depth, long-form reporting and insightful commentary on critical newsworthy subjects, along with engaging lifestyle articles and valuable service pieces. Our content is aimed at helping you make informed choices on how to spend your precious time and money living your best life here in the best county that we all call home.

With its well-curated variety of stories reported and published with the style and sensibilities of a glossy, feature-based magazine, Examiner+ is a perfect complement to the hard-news reporting readers have come to enjoy and expect from Examiner Media’s four community newspapers.

How Examiner+ works

Published on the cutting-edge Substack platform, Examiner+ is a subscription-based digital news and lifestyle magazine delivered in sections directly to your email inbox several times a week and on Saturdays with a special weekend edition that comprises that week’s entire issue along with additional content. Everything is also published on our website, www.examiner-plus.com.

What it costs

Subscribing to Examiner+ is free. We make about half of our material available to everyone at no charge, while the other half is only for paying members.

Membership costs $5.99/month or $49/year. Members receive full access to all of our premium content (via email and at any time on our website). By becoming a paid member, you support our goal to provide quality, professional, independent local journalism.

There’s also a premium tier, Examiner+ Ambassador, for $99/year (or more, if you choose), aimed at companies and individuals who want to support our work at a higher level. In addition to full access to our premium content, E+ Ambassadors will enjoy occasional perks and surprise bonuses throughout the year.

Unlike other media, our primary customers are our readers, ensuring that we’re delivering value to you. We work for our readers here in Westchester, Putnam, and the surrounding Hudson Valley — not for faraway corporate bosses.

Sign up for our free version and check us out. If you find us worth your time and want complete access to everything we produce, become a member. It’s that simple.

You are free to cancel at any time — though we, of course, want you to stick with us. Since you are our customer, we will work to make sure what you receive is worthy of your investment.
