For the first time in its history, Mission Valley News is being delivered by direct mail, starting with the August issue.
“Mission Valley News is now being mailed to every household and business in Mission Valley within the 92108 ZIP code,” said David Mannis, publisher of the paper’s parent company, San Diego Community Newspaper Network (SDCNN).
The monthly newspaper is delivered to local newsstands on the second Friday of the month, but Mannis said that most mailings and deliveries to homes and businesses will be received on Saturday or Monday.
Mission Valley News now has 17,000 copies delivered monthly by mail to every home and business, including many pickup points in high-traffic locations throughout the community. This includes newsstands, hotels and the Mission Valley Library.
“We believe Mission Valley residents and businesses deserve to have their very own community newspaper offering news and information pertinent to the people who live or work in Mission Valley,” Mannis said.
“We feel Mission Valley News will bring about a more community feel and cohesiveness,” he said. “We want Mission Valley News to be a primary resource for all that is taking place in this thriving community with all of the growth and development that affects people’s lives both positively and negatively.”
Mission Valley News is one of three newspapers purchased by SDCNN in July 2014 from Mission Publishing Group. SDCNN owns six newspapers with a total circulation of 118,000: Mission Valley News, San Diego Uptown News, San Diego Downtown News, Mission Times Courier, La Mesa Courier and Gay San Diego.
SDCNN’s office is located at 123 Camino de la Reina, Suite 202 East, in Mission Valley. The parent company’s phone number is 619-961-1950 and the website is SDCNN.com.
