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.

Our professionally-trained news staff provides real stories about our local communities—stories you won’t find anywhere else—and we have a lot of plans for local growth in the future.

Subscriptions cost $5.99/month, $65/year, or $120/year for online access PLUS home delivery.

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.

Weekly print editions are sent to subscribers via the U.S. Mail every Thursday morning. They can also be purchased each Thursday at BP and Kwik Trip stations in Stevens Point and Plover. 

If you have any concerns or questions, call our newsroom at 715.310.3319. You are our readers: we work for you.
