ABOUT US

New Hampshire is the Live-Free-or-Die state, and for Granite Post, living free is impossible without truth and transparency.

No one cares more about our state than the people who live here. And that’s us. Our experienced team of journalists all call New Hampshire home. We know you because we are you. We’re here to cut through the fog of disinformation and half-truths meant to confuse and distract from what we cherish most about our state and our country. That’s why we’re committed to reporting based on facts, science, and what matters most to Granite Staters.

At Granite Post, we believe in:

  • Centering our audience in all of our reporting: Our journalists are focused on lifting up the shared experience of living, working, and raising families in New Hampshire. Because of that, many of our stories focus on efforts to strengthen communities, expand access to health care and child care, address the climate crisis, and reduce inequality in all forms—that’s what matters to Granite Staters. We will publish our work where our audiences are, and when they move to new platforms or technologies, our brands and journalists will follow.
  • A living wage for a hard day’s work: We have seen our economy change dramatically. While New Hampshire once relied on manufacturing and farming work, we have shifted to an economy centered on high-tech, health care, retail, and hospitality. Some of us prosper in these areas, but many others have to work two or more jobs to keep going. We believe workers should be rewarded for their labor with good wages and benefits, not lied to or pitted against each other by politicians who don’t respect them.
  • A quality education for all families: New Hampshire has long been a family-centered state; children have the right to a good life. They deserve every opportunity to receive a quality education in safe, clean schools. To maintain that, we need classrooms that are free from political interference, educators who are respected and well-paid, and united communities where parents, students, and school staff work together to raise our future generations.
  • A New Hampshire that’s representative of all citizens and not just a chosen few: We believe everyone’s experience matters here. Our goal is to ensure Granite Staters who are often targeted and hurt by policy decisions have access to the information they need to understand what’s at stake and decide who has their best interests at heart.
  • A strong democracy: Access to the ballot box is essential for Granite Staters to have a say in how our state is run. A strong electorate is also an informed electorate, and one not divided by fear and lies.

 

We know not everyone has the time to read long-form, in-depth articles about every topic, so we break down our coverage into quick explainer pieces, infographics, engaging videos and more, all delivered directly to your inbox or on the social media feeds you already spend time in every day. And our articles are always free to read.

Granite Post is COURIER’s 10th state-based newsroom, and launched in December 2023. The organization is dedicated to providing honest, relevant news for and about New Hampshire. We are proud of our journalistic skills, our commitment to the facts, and our belief in our state and all it has to offer.

About COURIER

Granite Post is owned and operated by COURIER, a pro-democracy news network that is building a more informed, engaged, and representative America by reaching audiences where they are online with factual, values-driven news and analysis at the local and national level.

We reach audiences who are not regularly engaging with civic information, and who are unlikely to subscribe to paywalled journalism. As part of that effort, we deliver much of our reporting on the social platforms our readers use most frequently.

COURIER’s newsrooms practice independent, point-of-view journalism. COURIER is a public benefit corporation owned by Good Information Inc., and is supported by reader contributions, sponsors, philanthropic donations, and corporate underwriting. We maintain an editorial firewall between our newsrooms and underwriters, sponsors, and donors. We do not accept funding from any national or state political party, party committee, candidate, or campaign.

See COURIER’s website for additional information about our national team and our funding model.
