Expanding our commitment to providing the residents of Cape May County with reliable, relevant stories, The Standard is partnering with the Associated Press (AP) news wire service.
Cape May Court House — The Standard is proud to announce a new partnership with the Associated Press (AP) to provide our readers with world-class reporting of relevant importance to the people of South Jersey. Whether it’s international news, state and local, sports and entertainment, The Standard will be in a better position to bring you important news you can use.
Founded in 1846, the Associated Press (AP) is an independent global news organization dedicated to factual reporting and remains the most trusted source of fast, accurate, unbiased news in all formats and is an essential provider of the technology and services vital to the news business.
For 170 years, the AP has been breaking news and covering the world’s biggest stories, always committed to the highest standards of objective, accurate journalism. The AP was founded as an independent news cooperative, whose members are U.S. newspapers and broadcasters, steadfast in our mission to inform the world. From delivering the news via pony express in 1846 to working in virtual reality today, they are always innovating.
We will begin publishing news from the Associated Press wire service in the next few days. In the meantime, we will continue the process of working to expand our local reporting with more local stories and a diverse group of voices. We are currently applying for several grants that would allow us to pay freelance reporters to cover the stories and communities that are often not seen in our local news environment.
We ask for your support through your continued readership, but we also ask that you consider becoming a paid patron by donating monthly. You can choose the amount, but the more people we can find to support us, the more we can do. Right now, we’re just trying to cover our operating costs which is $350/month. It doesn’t sound like much, but it adds up. Our current advertising revenue from site traffic is fairly low, but we were hoping that an increase in traffic will help that to grow. We still need your support just to keep the lights on, and the news flowing.
