About Us

The Bay State Herald is a community-run media organization based in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood.

Launched in 2016 as a regional sports publication by the Rossiter Media Group, the Herald’s roots can be traced back to its sister publication, The Upstate Courier, which is based in Upstate New York’s Capital Region.

The Herald itself was launched in the fall of 2017 by a group of friends and Emerson College freshmen journalism students. Today the Herald prides itself on local reporting and coverage of news, sports, and the arts. Additionally, the Herald is proud to have a diverse group of dedicated opinion writers who share viewpoints on a wide variety of topics.
