About Us

The Shelton Herald has been covering Shelton since 1981.

As a locally-based paper, the Herald focuses exclusively on covering all aspects of Shelton — from its government agencies to service clubs, high school sports teams to unique neighborhoods, and community events to many businesses.
Whether it’s happening in Huntington, White Hills, Pine Rock Park, Long Hill or downtown, the Shelton Herald will surely let everyone in town know about it.

Shelton is known for being a diverse community of almost 40,000 people, offering an enviable balance of quiet residential areas, bustling business corridors and amble open space.

It’s a place where one can enjoy a backyard barbecue with family and friends, put in a day’s worth of work at a corporate park, shop at boutiques and chain stores, and admire the great outdoors on a recreational trail — all on the same day while only traveling a few miles.

And the Herald continues to change with the times, transforming from a must-see weekly paper to a website as well — where news, sports, features and events are updated around the clock.

The Herald is part of Hersam Acorn Newspapers. A traditional and new media firm, which includes printing facilities and local papers, specialty publications and websites in more than 20 communities in southwestern Connecticut, Lewisboro, N.Y., and Vermont. This gives our readers easy access to regional news and events as well as exposure to advertisers from across the region.

The Shelton Herald newsroom is at 1000 Bridgeport Avenue, Shelton, CT 06484. It can be reached at 203-402-2332.
