We’re pleased the site has gained a devoted following in the county, and beyond. We average about 7,900 unique visitors each day. We’re fortunate local businesses backed us from day 1 as advertisers. Many more have joined us – about 100 advertisers now.

The Hub is run through the Lake Country Pennysaver. Karen Sawicz serves as publisher of the Pennysaver and also the Orleans Hub.

We have dedicated people working on the site, including many of the staff at the Pennysaver. Mike Wertman covers local high school and youth sports and his wife Cheryl takes great action shots at many of the games. Kristina Gabalski also has been dedicated as a correspondent covering eastern Orleans County.

Tom Rivers left The Daily News in Batavia on March 1, 2013, after 16 years to help start the Orleans Hub. He serves as the Hub’s editor.

We have two ad representatives for Orleans Hub and the Lake Country Pennysaver. Brad London and Bob Stilwell can be reached by calling the Pennysaver at (585) 589-5641. Bob Stilwell joined our team on Feb. 2, 2018. (Click here to read “Pennysaver and Orleans Hub have new ad rep who wants to help local businesses succeed.)
