Trib Total Media and 535media started the Neighborhood News Network® in May 2018. Trib Total Media offers a multimedia suite of products and services to its customers including daily and weekly newspapers and weekly shoppers, websites, digital advertising, direct mail, commercial printing and media planning services. And, together with its digital affiliate, 535media, the two companies launched the Neighborhood News Network® with its inaugural site, SewickleyHerald.com.
