BarrieToday is an exclusively online news and information site that provides breaking news to you, our reader, as fast as you want it, wherever you are. Desktop? Mobile? Tablet? Definitely. We are optimized to give you the best reader experience in any format you choose.
BarrieToday is part of the Village Media network, which operates some of the largest online news sites in the communities they serve. The sites are driven by news and information that appeals to a highly engaged, loyal audience.
We break locally-driven news written by local journalists and cover all the important issues in your “Village.” It’s our top priority. We update throughout the day, so when you come back to visit, chances are you’ll find something new.
In addition to hard news, we also provide information that is important to the community that you won’t find in most media. We like to write stories about new local businesses, highlight special events and bring you general information about anything that impacts the heart of the community. Although we are hyper-local in our approach, we also provide national news from The Canadian Press, editorial columnists, entertainment and special features.
The BarrieToday newsroom includes experienced journalists Robin MacLennan and Sue Sgambati. Robin has been a reporter, photographer and editor for the daily media in Barrie, Orillia and Toronto for many years. Sue has had a 30-year career in journalism working for print, radio and TV. Both are proud members of the Barrie community.
We’re independent and it shows in everything we do. And we promise that we’ll remain fiercely local. Like you.
