Building Community One Story at a Time

6,290 stories and writing on

Thank you for reading Chadds Ford Live and for your support the past seven years. We've come  a long way from when Rich Schwartzman and I decided to rescue local news reporting when The Chadds Ford Post went out of business. Since then, we expanded our news coverage when Kathy Brady Shea joined our team.

This year we have an intern, Morgan Carter of Chadds Ford. Dozens of contributors from our community give our publication the unique community blog feel, yet the stories from our professional journalists maintain the highest quality of reporting. Casual blogs and tweets have their place in all of our internet lives, but we see the need and are proud to be part of training the next generation of journalists.

Our readership is up from more than 40,000 last quarter to more than 60,000 this quarter. The Chadds Ford Business Association and the Business and Professional Association of Western Delaware County include $25 annual subscriptions to Chadds Ford Live as part of their membership dues. Thank you.

We depend on our readers and advertisers - many of whom have been with us since the beginning – to provide financial support for our operations. Most of our support comes from advertisers, but we depend on our subscribers also.  We use the same subscriber model as  your local PBS station: Chadds Ford Live is available to all on the Internet, but we seek your voluntary contribution to enable us to continue to provide the same high quality publication that you have learned to depend on since 2009.  Help us to continue to serve you by clicking this link and subscribing.

Thank you for your loyal support of Chadds Ford Live. Please support our advertisers. They support your news!
