The Skanner is a website and newspaper published in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington. Established in 1975, The Skanner News Group has advanced the cause of the Black Press in the North Western United States. Through the newspapers and the Web site The Skanner has provided regional and national corporate advertisers a variety of methods to effectively market their products and services to our readers.
The Skanner views its printed editions as a tool for the community to learn about what is happening around us as well as giving our readers an opportunity to voice their opinion. We consider our on-line version of the newspaper to do the same, reaching an even broader audience.
