Needles, CA: Happy 9th Anniversary ZachNews!
Hello to all of our wonderful ZachNews fans.
At 12:58pm PT on Thursday, January 21st, 2010, I began this independent news service called “ZachNews” for the people in and around Needles, California and the Colorado River Tri-State area.
Over those 9 years, ZachNews reported on many local news stories that affected our community both good and bad, well keeping to our morals and ethics in journalism for the people who relay and trust on ZachNews for their news and information.
When I started ZachNews, I never thought this would last long and wouldn’t get any following, but years later I’ve witnessed the outpouring of love and support by so many wonderful people near and far. I’m very thankful to have such wonderful fans and for welcoming into your lives with the news and events happening in our area.
On this 9th Anniversary of ZachNews, I would like to say thank you to all of the wonderful people for their love and support of ZachNews over these 9 years. From shot outs of support for ZachNews as I walk down the street to reading your messages of support for ZachNews posted on Facebook at “ISupportZachNews”, the love and support I’ve seen from you all keeps me going and standing strong.
I would like to also thank David Faltskog, Steve Cox, Rafael Morales and Steve Cox for teaching me how to become a broadcast journalist and photojournalist, and for bringing me under your wings to show me how the news is done. Without your teachings, advice, support and friendship, ZachNews wouldn’t be here today and grown to be what ZachNews is today.
I wish you all a wonderful, safe and healthy 2019 everybody, and thank you again for being a fan and supporter of ZachNews.
