The Upstate Courier is a nonprofit news organization dedicated to providing reliable and essential local coverage to many of the underserved communities of the Upper Hudson Valley, Capital District, and North Country.
Founded in 2015 as a regional sports publication, The Courier continues to embrace the value of community sports coverage. From the sidelines of Section II to the hardwood at the Times Union Center, Courier reporters cover all the bases with a unique local perspective unmatched in the area.
In recent time, The Courier has embarked on an ambitious project to increase local journalism in the rural towns and communities outside the metropolitan areas of Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga Springs.
