I submitted a local news story.  When will it be posted?
Several factors impact when a story gets posted, including when it was submitted (the earlier the better) and in what form (press release with photos is best), and how urgent or time-sensitive it is relative to other stories in the "queue," among other factors. 

Holidays, major news stories or events and other factors can delay a story being posted.

IMPORTANT: We are no longer able to accept stories submitted via Facebook or other social media sites.  Please send your tips and stories to

I want my story posted on Corunna Now, Durand Now, Owosso Now and Perry Pulse too.  Do I have to send it to each site?
While stories frequently get "cross-posted" to our other local news sites, if you want it to appear on a specific site, you should send the story to that site's email address.
Can I submit a story of local interest?
Absolutely.  We welcome all types of locally-focused contributor content.

Can you post a story about my business?
Generally, stories about for-profit ventures such as sales and other special events do not fall within our editorial guidelines for posts.  The exception is stories of particular interest to the community, such as the opening or closing of a business.  However, advertising partners are welcome to submit this type of story for publication.

There is no cost for businesses to be included in the business directories on Corunna Now, Durand Now and Perry Pulse.  You may submit business name, address, phone number(s), web address and email address as well as business category.

My business is hosting a charitable event.  Can you post a story about it?
Yes.  Whether you are an advertising partner or not, if your business is hosting a non-profit, charitable event, we are happy to post it anytime.

How can I get more exposure for my event?
When we hear "prolonged exposure," it's usually a negative thing.  But it's exactly the thing you want and need if you're having an event or if you're a business owner.  Advertising on Perry Pulse is, hands down, the best way to keep your business or event top of mind for active, young adults today.
