Ward Media unveils enhanced digital experience with Wenatchee Business Journal website redesign and Launch of NCW News


As the CEO & Publisher of Ward Media, I take great pride and responsibility in ensuring that the Wenatchee Business Journal not only upholds its heritage of trusted business journalism but also advances to meet the contemporary needs of our readers. With considerable excitement, I announce the launch of the Wenatchee Business Journal's redesigned website at, signifying a major advancement in our evolution.

The redesign of our website was inspired by a clear ambition: to forge a digital platform that is as accessible, engaging, and valuable to our readers as our print edition has been for decades. With the introduction of the new, we have realized this vision.

This revamped site signifies our pledge to elevate your reading experience. We have made the subscription process more straightforward, making it easier than ever to join our community of informed readers online. For our valued subscribers, we've unveiled a collection of online tools designed to provide you with unparalleled control over your subscription. Whether updating your profile, addressing a delivery matter, or pausing your subscription while you're away, these functionalities are now just a click away.

Acknowledging the critical role of community interaction, our new platform invites you to engage directly with the Wenatchee Business Journal. You can submit opinion pieces, share news leads, and announce significant business milestones—from company formations and partnerships to achievements and commemorations. Our intention is to make a dynamic hub where your insights and stories are prominently featured and shared.

We're also introducing "web extras"—exclusive online content that supplements our traditional print stories. These additions, along with the streamlined process for placing ads, submitting events to our calendar, and accessing the E-edition in a more user-friendly layout, are part of our dedication to providing a comprehensive digital experience.

The unveiling of the new is just the beginning. We are equally thrilled to launch NCW News (, an innovative site committed to bringing you extensive news coverage from across North Central Washington. This initiative reflects our ongoing commitment to keeping our community well-informed and interconnected.

The debut of the Wenatchee Business Journal's redesigned website and the introduction of NCW News mark a pivotal moment in our mission to deliver premier business journalism in the digital age. As we move forward, I invite you to explore these platforms, engage with our content, and join us in marking this new chapter in the life of the Wenatchee Business Journal.

Terry Ward is the CEO of Ward Media and the publisher of the Cashmere Valley Record, Lake Chelan Mirror, The Leavenworth Echo, Quad City Herald, and the Wenatchee Business Journal. He can be reached at
