The Valley Side is a local media company covering the communities of Herkimer, Mohawk, Ilion, Frankfort, and the surrounding area. Its mission is to generate interest in those communities and connect residents in a more meaningful way by facilitating deeper conversations about how news and events will shape the future of the area.

Our sister publication – My Little Falls – covers the City of Little Falls, Town of Little Falls, Dolgeville, Salisbury, and the surrounding area. It’s about big news in small towns and how it impacts everyday life.

It’s about timely local news for the community, keeping citizens informed about important issues, telling stories about the people who live and work here, and giving locally owned businesses the opportunity to reach a very targeted audience of local residents and tourists alike.

It’s a whole new form of media-rich content developed specifically for today’s mobile lifestyle and listeners.

Studies have shown that when news coverage disappears, people are less informed, civic participation drops, and political corruption increases.

We also have a monthly print product in our lineup called the Mohawk Valley Express. The Mohawk Valley Express is distributed the first week of each month and focuses on the upcoming month’s activities.

You can pick up a free copy of the paper at many of your local stores, restaurants, and businesses.
