Help us tell Ashland’s stories

Quality community journalism costs money, and we can’t do it without your help. If you agree that accurate, independent local journalism is vital to our community, please consider purchasing a Source Membership. Every dollar goes directly to news reporting operations.

Ashland Source is laser-focused on local news and committed to telling the whole story of Ashland County — not just the bad stuff. Like you, we’re excited about the positive changes and improvements in Ashland and can’t wait to cover all of them.

A big part of my job satisfaction comes from working for a company that shares my values. Source Media Group — That’s Richland Source, Ashland Source and Knox Pages— is locally owned, and it shows.

Your Pillar membership supports local journalism and service organizations at the same time. Pillar members can designate advertising credit to the nonprofit of their choice.



Members who choose the Supporter option receive all of the benefits of lower-priced plans, plus valuable discounts at over 30 local businesses from around the region.



At less than five bucks a month, you’re invited to all the events and you’re saying “Look, I get it. Nothing good happens for nothing.” That says a lot. And our entire team appreciates it.

Ashland Source is my go to news outlet personally and professionally. I have found the information to be accurate, fair, unbiased, and positive.
— Misty Miller, RCE, ePRO, Executive Officer of the Ashland Board of REALTORS®
