About Muskoka News Watch (MNW)

We are an independent Muskoka news source. Our news team is right here on the ground in Muskoka. Our journalists have worked for other media in Muskoka (print and radio) and our founder for national media outlets such as Canadian Press/Broadcast News.

How we work: MNW will attempt to follow up on all news tips. Those tips may not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editorial team. Following ethical journalistic practice, no story is reported unless at least three sources have confirmed the story. We will never reveal our anonymous news sources to anyone. Guaranteed. Furthermore, Muskoka News Watch maintains a strict firewall between advertisers and editorial. We are so happy for support by our advertisers but advertisers have no say or influence over any story that appears here.

Please understand as a service that relies on limited advertising and donations and limited resources, we can not publish every story we would like to, including ones we investigate.

Advertisers Welcome! Contact Editor@MuskokaNewsWatch.com for information about space and rates.
