When someone asks, “What is New Bern Now”, my standard answer is “It’s a community website and publication”. But it’s much more than that…it’s a Community Cooperative Effort.
In 2009, New Bern Now was founded on the idea of creating a “One Stop, Information Shop” for the Greater New Bern, NC area.
It’s a place for visitors and residents to discover what our beautiful town and surrounding areas have to offer. We believe that if people learned about our local businesses, non-profits, events, etc., hopefully they will support them and ultimately connect people with our community.
Although NBN was initially created as a website, we are proud of the fact that with the help from friends, we have grown into a multi-service media company to promote the greater good of our community.
We couldn’t have grown without the encouragement and help from our community! We really appreciate everyone who have sent us articles, community announcements, and press releases. We also really appreciate our advertisers for supporting our efforts.
