Looking for reliable hometown headlines? You definitely clicked on the right place.
Welcome to PelhamToday.ca, the latest addition to Village Media’s expanding network of news websites that specialize in hyperlocal journalism. We cover the stories that matter most: the ones right in your neighbourhood.
Launched Monday morning, PelhamToday is Village Media’s 20th owned-and-operated local news website in Ontario — and the third Village site in Niagara Region, joining ThoroldToday and Niagara-on-the-Lake Local.
For longtime readers of The Voice, this site will feel very familiar. The same writers, editors and columnists you relied on for accurate, important reporting in your weekly newspaper will continue to inform you here — every day — at PelhamToday.
The layout may be different, but the quality journalism will remain exactly the same.
Along with Editor Dave Burket, our roster of writers includes Don Rickers, John Chick, Helen Tran, and Brian Green, as well as columnists John Swart, Rev. Michael Coren, Larry Cote, and Rob Weatherby.
“We are thrilled to be in Pelham, a place where people care deeply about their community and the news and events happening around them,” says Jeff Elgie, the CEO of Village Media. “We have an amazing team in place and we’re looking forward to showing local residents why they should turn to us first for breaking news and deeper coverage in Central Niagara.”
Born digital, Village Media boasts a growing network of more than 60 owned-and-operated and partner websites in Canada and the United States — each one committed to strengthening the community it serves. Free to everyone, our websites are designed to be super-fast and easy to navigate, whether you’re on a phone, computer or tablet.
Most importantly, every Village Media news site is a trusted source of reliable, fact-based journalism and other important information, including weather reports, obituaries and classifieds.
“When done with purpose and passion, local journalism has the power to connect communities like nothing else can,” says Michael Friscolanti, Editor-in-Chief at Village Media. “We introduce you to fascinating neighbours and celebrate local triumphs, but we also ask the tough questions and hold decision-makers to account. When local news thrives, everyone benefits.”
PelhamToday Editor Dave Burket says he's eager to explore the expanded resources that Village Media offers.
"The talent on this team is incredible," says Burket. "We now have the ability to bring readers almost hourly updates of important stories, both local and farther afield. And readers can be assured that our investigative appetite is still very much present."
