We’re the Westchester / Playa HomeTown News!

Since 2002, the HomeTown News has informed and connected readers in our coverage areas of Westchester, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, and Marina del Rey.

Our mission is and always has been to focus on hyper-local positive news, and there’s nothing we love more than spotlighting all the great things that go on in our community.

Some of our favorite things:

  • Featuring community members so they can share their stories
  • Highlighting local families in “In your hometown with…”
  • Building Community Partnerships
  • Supporting our local businesses
  • Covering news, events and doing features!

The Hometown News is the premier community newspaper for people who live and work in our coverage area.

Our circulation is 16,000, and our publication is the only local paper delivered to single-family homes in Westchester/Playa and local businesses!

Our vision is simple: We seek to unite and strengthen the sense of community in our coverage area through focusing on the positive news that impacts our readers. With a strong pulse on the community, we are proud to be a sought-after source for local news, human-interest features, event coverage and business features.
