Regional News of National Importance

The River will be the first Hudson Valley news outlet to consistently offer in-depth coverage from a regional perspective on issues of national importance, investigating underreported topics and connecting the region to the world.

The River is another project of Luminary Media, publishers of Chronogram. It will build on our regional knowhow to mobilize and curate independent journalism focused on crafting stories that empower conversation, foster debate, and impact change in the Hudson Valley.

The River Runs On Civil

Civil is a self-governing marketplace that powers a free and sustainable press, while taking advertisers and other third parties out of the equation. Its platform supports independently run newsrooms focused on producing local, investigative and policy journalism.

Civil’s blockchain-based model enables a more direct, transparent connection between Citizens and Newsmakers and strengthens protections for journalists against censorship and intellectual property disputes.
