** About ZachNews **
On Thursday, January 21st, 2010, a local resident name Zachary Lopez started his own independent news service called ZachNews in the small desert community of Needles, California that would not only provide the people another source for news and events, but also use social media and video sharing sites to report the news and share what this community has to offer.
Well the idea of using social media and video sharing sites to report news and events was frowned upon by some city officials, community group members and even from the local newspapers, Zachary continued on with his plans of starting his ZachNews independent news service.
ZachNews began to report on local news as well as breaking news from fires, storms and crashes to local government issues and other newsworthy reports; as well as began reporting on local events from parades to fairs and promoted the many great businesses and restaurants the community has to offer.
Over the next few years, ZachNews began to gain a large following of great people, not only from within Needles, California, but also outside of the community and beyond.
Major news outlets, including Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and beyond, began to use and credited ZachNews on news reports, including crediting pictures, videos and live broadcasts by ZachNews in their news reports, growing more trust in ZachNews by more people and by major news outlets as a credited independent news service.
Over 13 years later, ZachNews has continued to bring the people the news and events that are occurring in the area despite financial difficulties, health issues and attacks by some people who hate honest, unbias, raw and real news, including by those in the news who didn’t like being held accountable for their actions and tried to hide them.
ZachNews will never be threaten, bribed, slandered or physical attack to be dishonest, bias and fake as some in the news are today, for ZachNews stands strong on his honesty, morals, ethics and integrity for the people who rely and trust Zachary Lopez and his ZachNews credited independent news service; the news is for and about the people you are serving, not for the fame, money, perks, freebies, and awards.
Thanks to all of the wonderful fans who follow and supported ZachNews through the many years, earning your love, support and trust in reporting news and events for the people.
