About Edmonds Beacon
The Edmonds Beacon, part of the Beacon Publishing family of newspapers that first came off the presses in 1986, is an independent, locally owned and operated newspaper dedicated to providing the most comprehensive coverage available of local news, youth sports, opinion and features – both in print and online.
Our award-winning team of professionally trained journalists provides objective, fair reporting to ensure readers get the best available information, whether it’s about city hall, law and order, our schools or your neighbors.
The news team has won numerous statewide awards for writing and photography, and Publisher Paul Archipley was named Snohomish County’s Entrepreneur of the Year by the Herald Business Journal (2013), and was presented the Miles Turnbull Editor/Publisher Award, the Washington Newspaper Publisher’s Association’s highest honor for editors and publishers (2018).
While we endeavor to include positive news that highlights what’s best about Edmonds, we don’t shy away from controversy. Our readers deserve to know the truth, and we’ll provide it promptly, fairly and honestly.
The Beacon publishes every Thursday.
