We’re celebrating our 4th year!
Happy Anniversary to GRNT!
As we celebrate our third year in the hyperlocal news business (established September 2014), we’d like to invite our loyal readers to consider supporting Glen Rock News Today (formally Banana Tree News) in one of two ways. You can show your support with a one-time contribution, or become a monthly supporter. More on that below.
Here’s a little incentive for you:
The first 50 supporters will receive a copy of Glen Rock, New Jersey (Images of America Series) as a special thank-you! It’s full of glorious history, expert guidance, fun facts and useful information, and it’s yours FREE with a sustaining gift. In addition, you will get home delivery of the print edition of Glen Rock News today. We are biweekly – but more support and advertisers we can then go weekly.
Wait: Why should you have to pay for local news?
You don’t have to pay for news anymore, for the most part. That’s made it hard for journalists to earn an honest living.
Since this site was launched in September of 2014, Glen Rock News Today has been dedicated to providing an independent source of news and information for those who live, work, play and otherwise obsess over Glen Rock NJ.
Glen Rock News Today started from nothing. IT is now the source of my living and love of the town.
That means there’s no regular paycheck from a corporate entity. That also means I am only accountable to her readers.
Viva la independent news!
[By the way, we couldn’t do it without our advertisers! So, if you’d like to learn more about becoming an ad partner, Click here– we’ll do everything we can to get your message in front of our more than 30,000 average monthly readers, with a reach that extends far beyond your own Facebook marketing abilities.]
So, back to the question:
Why should you consider supporting Glen Rock News Today?
You mean, why should a news consumer consider supporting his or her favorite news sources?
It’s pretty straightforward: You wouldn’t expect a plumber to unclog your sink for free. You are happy to pay your manicurist or hair stylist for work well done. You subscribe to cable and premium channels because you like what they dish out, providers including Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, and HBO.
By that logic, what is the value of having someone provide you with reliable news and information every single day?
That’s something you will have to answer for yourself.
As we continue to grow GRNT, we’ve decided to ask those of you who find value in our website and print edition to show your appreciation with a one-time “sponsorship” – or even better, consider making monthly contributions to keep the news flowing.
With enough sustainable support, the plan for 2019 is to continue to grow the print edition and hire more help to bring you even more of the news that’s important to you.
How to contribute: Send a check to: Glen Rock News Today., 35 Henry St Glen Rock NJ 07452. or use the subscription buttons below. More information, Please email us at [email protected]

This money will go to hiring freelance writers, editors and photographers to make GRNT even better.
