Mission Statement

As fishermen glide along Middle River toward the fine mist rising along the banks in the early morning light, Mt. Diablo rises over its marine layer cloak to greet the day.

OUR MISSION:  To become the trusted go-to voice for this journalistically underserved region.

SOUNDINGS Magazine, established 2018, is an online publication reporting on issues and history concerning and involving the people of the California Delta and beyond. Employing the voices of a diverse group of accomplished local journalists, photographers, videographers, and guest editorialists, SOUNDINGS strives to tell stories unique to this region. We even throw in some fine fiction for good measure.

SOUNDINGS is crowdfunded, relying on voluntary paid subscriptions and patron support to ensure its success rather traditional forms of advertising.
