As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rapidly evolve across the globe, the Renton Reporter must also adapt in order to ensure the continuation of high-quality local journalism into the future.

Significantly decreased advertising revenue, directly resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, has forced Sound Publishing to make the incredibly difficult decision to temporarily reduce staffing and suspend print publication of the Reporter and other sister newspapers. In the weeks to come, you will still be able to follow local news stories and breaking developments as they happen by visiting rentonreporter.com.
