Leveraging the power of storytelling as a catalyst for change

Proof that our premium monthly magazines are making a difference in local communities

School Teacher Rachel Porter

Good News Shelbyville Classroom Legacies Edition

Rachel received a proclamation for being the Bedford County teacher of the year and became a state finalist shortly after the publication featuring her came out.

Think about the dedication and the sacrifice that most teachers put in and never get recognized publicly like this.

And imagine how this might give Rachel the motivation to continue to inspire and guide the youth in her town.

SRO Officer Willie Young

Good News Tullahoma Heroes Edition

After the Heroes edition of Good News hit the streets, a fan of his on facebook changed their profile picture to Willie’s cover. Showing how proud they were of their local hero. 

After the division we faced as a country over the past few years as it relates to the Black Lives Matter movement and local law enforcement, it is encouraging to see how we can start to change the narrative in this country one community at a time.

Jorge Morales

Good News Fayetteville Food Issue

Jorge is the owner of a Mexican ice cream shop here in Fayetteville. When taking Jorge’s photo for the cover of our Food Issue, he kept thinking we were going to send him a bill for the advertising. 

This is what he had to say after his issue was released:
“Before our story was published, I struggled to have enough customers in the store. Now that it is out, I struggle to keep my ice cream in stock!”

Reader Testimonials

“First, let me just say how thoroughly impressed I am with your wonderful magazine!

It is a positive, uplifting, high-quality publication that I savor and save month-to-month for reference to businesses, programs and individuals that are highlighted. ”

Kay Bartley

“I just want you to know how much I enjoyed reading your magazine. I do not watch the news anymore. Every story is so depressing. Thank you for sharing good news and making us feel better about the community around us and the good people who live here and share their lives with us. Great job keep up your good work. ”

Eva Lewis

“It’s so nice to pick up a publication and read about the successes and events in our little community. I try to grab up local magazines when in other areas to learn more about people, places and things, but reading one that I can really relate to and learn from is so special. Great job!”

Cindy Kite

“Love this publication! I learn something new about people and places in our community with each issue. Magazine truly lives up to its name.”
