About Us

Contributing To Your Success Tri-Community NewsPlus has been proudly serving Phelan, Pinon Hills, Wrightwood and the surrounding areas since 1998

Realizing that there was a need in the Tri-Community for a hometown, local source of news, the kind of news that celebrates the accomplishments of the community, Tri-Community NewsPlus was established in 1998. The NewsPlus name may be new to you, though for over 20 years it has been recognized as a highly regarded community publication. NewPlus focuses on reporting local news, local interests, local events and supporting local businesses through advertising, public awareness and marketing opportunities. Always promoting a live local, buy local, be local lifestyle, we have become the goto newspaper in the community. This is what we feel the Tri-Community needs–deserves! We have taken our years of experience and developed a paper that the members of the Tri-Community are proud to call the only source for local news and events that matters, the Tri-Community NewsPlus.

We are here to help your business succeed.  NewsPlus has been a locally owned and independently operated business since its first issue was published.  Our clients are very loyal and, in fact, stay with us for an average of 10+ years (3x the national average).
