Community journalism is in trouble. Only you can help it survive.
The Metro Wire was born in November 2017 after our staff positions were eliminated from another local publication. We are the only locally-owned and operated daily news source left in Portage Co.
Our trained news staff provides real, in-depth stories about our local communities — stories you won’t find anywhere else — that focus on local government, crime and courts, business, and community.
Subscriptions cost $7.99/month or $85/year.
By subscribing, you’re supporting local journalists who funnel that money back into the Stevens Point and Plover communities.
By subscribing, you’re supporting a locally-owned and operated news company with the sole interest of informing the public. Your subscription will also help us create additional jobs—our original intent all along—and implement journalism education in local schools, and sponsor fundraising events for local organizations, along with other plans.
If you have any concerns or questions, call our newsroom at 715.310.3319. You are our readers: we work for you.
