Life is complicated, but your news doesn’t have to be.

CV Reporter helps you be smarter, faster, by giving you news you need to know about life in the Coachella Valley in a simple, easy-to-digest format.

Help us launch a new type of media in the Coachella Valley

Here’s what makes us different

  • We focus on the news, events, and information our neighbors care about and don’t allow special interest groups to influence or buy our coverage.
  • We believe local news outlets should be locally owned and produced and that vital news and information should be free for everyone, always.
  • We purposely avoid the clutter and clickbait found in corporate news products.

Meet our team

We’re local residents who can’t stand to watch journalism deteriorate further.

After a long career at national news websites, Mark Talkington founded The Palm Springs Post in 2021.
