Advertise with is one of the fastest growing news outlets in SE Iowa. With thousands of unique readers every day, you will get noticed as our population becomes more mobile, and has less time for the more traditional sources.

Starting in August of 2010 as a result of two people’s conversation. That conversation had lead to a group of people; dedicated and volunteering their time, effort and talents to the community, for the benefit of the community.

Osky News is active in the political arena, providing pictures and news from sporting events, local events with an emphasis on reporting the news in a way that is quick and easy for today’s consumer. As always we are looking for more volunteers and welcome those in the community to join us in the unique experience of citizen journalism.

Does citizen journalism work, what kind of impact can it really make you might ask. Recently, Osky News was picked up by Google News, allowing news and information of what happens in Oskaloosa and our surrounding area to be found quicker and easier by search engines. Citizen journalism sites such as Osky News can also have their content used and picked up by larger media sources, such as having video picked up by The Colbert Report, The O’Rielly Factor, or local TV such as KCCI and KGAN or regional news sources like Eastern Iowa News as has happened during the last year.

Being internet based also allows your ad to reach well beyond the limits of traditional local media. Osky News had been read on all 7 continents, 142 countries and of course all 50 states in the US. If your a worldwide business located in this area, this provides a unique opportunity to be seen and also associated with the community you are located in to prospective clients. For the more regional and local business, Osky News as of August 1st, 2011 had been 387 different communities in Iowa.
