Whole Community News

From Kalapuya lands in the Willamette watershed


John Quetzalcoatl Murray has served as reporter, editor, or publisher for weekly community newspapers in Alaska, Utah, Washington, Hawai’i, Montana, and Oregon, and co-founded the news nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization Corporation for Public Community Newspapers in 2006. One of CPCN’s initial projects was to publish the Clark Fork Chronicle, a weekly community newspaper in western Montana, which garnered over 50 awards from the Montana Newspaper Association.

As a partner with Eugene radio station KEPW 97.3 FM, CPCN was honored to receive the prestigious Edward R. Murrow award for the best Digital News site, edging out KLCC and other great regional news organizations in Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon. 

When KEPW’s website subsequently encountered security issues and was temporarily blacklisted by many platforms, KEPW offered a very generous grant to CPCN to continue publishing our award-winning news website under the name Whole Community News, for the next 10 years. Whole Community News is funded by KEPW and by listener and reader contributions and subscriptions at the CPCN website, https://www.PublicNewspapers.org

The KEPW News team welcomes community contributions and encourages Eugene residents to become active within their neighborhood associations.
