Welcome to Examiner+

Award-winning bonus content newsletter. Delivering smart community news reporting and commentary so you can live your most intelligent local life.

Join thousands of your fellow locals here on Examiner+, our newsmagazine-style newsletter delivering quality reporting on news, issues, and lifestyle topics relevant to life in and around Westchester.

As an established group of trusted local newspapers since 2007 (visit us at theexaminernews.com) Examiner Media’s roots and connections run long and deep. We’ve tapped into those local connections and expertise for Examiner+ to complement our award-winning print and online community newspaper coverage.

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 most intelligent local life here in the county we call home.

With its well-curated variety of stories, Examiner+ helps augment our print and website coverage.

How Examiner+ works

Examiner+ is a subscription-based email newsletter delivered in sections directly to your email inbox throughout the work 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 Examiner+ newsletter website, www.examiner-plus.com, while select pieces are only partially excerpted for non-subscribers on our newspaper website, www.theexaminernews.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 this newsletter website, www.examiner-plus.com). 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.
