Support local news

The Larchmont Chronicle is grateful to our readers and advertisers who, collectively, make it possible to gather, analyze and edit the news, then print and distribute it, every month. This January 2024 issue marks the commencement of our 62nd year of doing just that.

In addition to those just mentioned, thanks certainly are due to the two ladies — Jane Gilman and the late Dawne Goodwin — who saw and acted upon the opportunity to provide a local newspaper to the residents and businesses in this part of town. (We also thank Jane for continuing to help us out!)
By now, the modern plight of American newspapers, large and small, is well known to those who keep up with the news.

And doing that — keeping up with the news — is getting harder with every passing day. Fortunately for the Chronicle, we have the aforementioned readers and advertisers who keep this paper available for all. But other newspapers are closing all across the nation.

Assembly Bill 886 (AB 886) was passed by the Assembly in June. In response to pushback from the Big Tech companies who would have to pay news outlets a fee when advertising is sold alongside news content produced by others, State Senate consideration of the bill was postponed.

The Larchmont Chronicle suggests readers urge local State Senators Ben Allen, Maria Elena Durazo, Anthony Portantino and Lola Smallwood-Cuevas to work with their colleagues to adopt AB 886 in 2024.
