The Kennett Times is a new venture in local news and will formally launch in June, 2011. Our sister site, The Unionville Times, (www.unionvilletimes.com) which launched in Oct., 2010 is already the fastest growing news source in Chester County and no. 1 in southern Chester County among local news sites in traffic, according to Alexa.com.
Locally owned and operated, it is a digital throwback to the era where the local newspaper was owned and managed by those in the community. There is no print edition as yet — and there may never be. The costs of distribution and printing are increasingly strangling traditional print media. As we evolve we will look at other options for distribution, including an iPad application and downloadable PDFs.
An weekly email edition will launch later this year.
