Mesa News Today, a leading local news source announced today that it is rebranding as Digital Free Press Mesa. 

The rebranding reflects the company’s commitment to providing high-quality, unbiased journalism in the digital age through a partnership struck with the Phoenix-based Arizona Digital Free Press

“We are excited to launch Digital Free Press Mesa as the next chapter in our company’s history,” said Jill Adair, owner of Digital Free Press Mesa who serves as chief copy editor at the Arizona Digital Free Press. “This rebranding reflects our commitment to providing our readers with the most up-to-date and relevant news and information, delivered through a variety of digital platforms.”

Digital Free Press Mesa will continue to provide in-depth coverage of local news, politics, and community events, with a focus on Local News That Matters in the community of Mesa. The Arizona Digital Free Press operates a news website found here, publishes a daily newsletter — the Daily Beat — and provides an app on both Google and Apple platforms. All existing digital products of the Arizona Digital Free Press are free. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Mesa News Today to bring Digital Free Press to the Mesa community,” said Terrance Thornton, founder of Arizona Digital Free Press. “Our shared commitment to unbiased journalism and community engagement makes this a natural partnership.”

Digital Free Press Mesa is part of the Digital Free Press network, a growing group of free digital news organizations in Arizona. The network is committed to providing high-quality, nonpartisan journalism that is essential for a healthy democracy — not stuck behind a paywall or app-plus service. 

Mr. Thornton says he is aiming to expand into reporting the Local News That Matters at Mesa City Hall beginning this summer.

“The city of Mesa is our next reporting community — a community I thoroughly enjoyed covering years ago,” he said in a prepared statement. “What our Mesa audience can expect from the Digital Free Press is expert reporting at City Hall coupled with our coverage of the local business, real estate and philanthropic communities. Today, readers can download the Digital Press app on Apple or Google to find Mesa news over the last 19 months.”

The vision of the Arizona Digital Free Press is simple: To forge a digital-only, sustainable news organization focused on expert reporting at City Hall, enterprise coverage of the business community — and help promote efforts trying to make the world a better place through Real Property & Homes.

The focus of this news organization is journalism, at the Arizona Digital Free Press we will not be advocates for issues, a purveyor of right or wrong but rather a company focused on seeking the truth no matter the outcome. The Digital Free Press reports the Local News That Matters.

The Digital Free Press Mesa Promise:
  • To deliver unbiased City Hall reporting that matters to local residents;
  • To provide the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Town of Paradise Valley and Mesa business community a neutral source for information and commentary; and
  • To provide a digital content platform for local journalists to provide content and be paid a fee in addition to revenue generated from page views.
