Community Newspapers Inc. publishes 18 weekly newspapers from its offices in New Berlin. It sometimes can be difficult to know who to contact about your press releases. A good source is the information box found on Page 4 of each newspaper. It lists key staff, including the editor, reporter and photographer, for each community.
