Senior News tells stories about local seniors and local issues of importance to older adults, their families and their caregivers. This 24-page monthly newspaper is distributed along a 150-mile stretch of the northwest California coast.

Senior News serves the largest growing demographic in Humboldt County. According to the latest counts, seniors (65 and over) comprise 17.9 percent of the population in Humboldt. Senior News has been published by the Humboldt Senior Resource Center since 1981. This nonprofit publication is funded by local businesses and nonprofits through advertising dollars.
