Beacon announces new website!

Mark Fortune, Publisher and owner of The Coshocton County Beacon, is pleased to announce the launch of a new web site for the community. Located at, the website will be updated daily with local news, events, photo galleries and more. Fortune explains, “We know that the internet provides a vast resource for community newspapers such as The Beacon, and we knew that moving in this direction was not only a necessity but also a vital means of communicating news and events in a more timely fashion than our print publication. The Beacon is not going away – in fact – we are looking at expanding our reach and coverage very soon in the print realm. Our new website is much more interactive than our previous site – which only contained pdf’s of The Beacon and links to our specialty publications. You will now find a totally interactive community calendar on this website where members of the community can place their own event listings. We will preview all events before uploading them to

Further, we have placed links to other organizations in the community –for example, The Chamber of Commerce, The Coshocton County Visitor’s Bureau, The Coshocton County Commissioners and more. This effort will be an ongoing and always evolving process. As with the print edition, we are always open to suggestions from the community for improvements and additions.

We will also be selling advertising on this new website because we know that once the word is out – we expect the demand will exist for that. “We are excited to announce this improvement not only for our company but also for our community”, says Fortune. “We appreciate the confidence and support of our local advertisers and our readers. Without that support we would not be able to move forward in this exciting new effort!”
