Com·mu·ni·ty News·pa·per [kuh-myoo-ni-tee nooz-pey-per] n., A publication printed on a regular, periodic basis throughout the year (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly); Contains community-specific reporting and editorial content and is typically published from a perspective from within a community rather than an external perspective observing the community; Serves as a local communications vehicle that enables a community to communicate with itself. A community newspaper gears itself to do the things larger city dailies cannot do - to serve their local neighborhood(s) and to be the number one source of news and local advertising for a specific geographic area - their community.
