Submit a press release

Send us a press release or announcement for your business or organization. We may write a story about it, or we may post it directly to our Community Announcements section.

Submit an obituary

RiverheadLOCAL publishes obituaries for residents and former residents of the communities of Riverhead and Southold towns, as well as Riverside, Northampton and Flanders.

Obituaries can include a photo of the deceased. Obituaries are written by the publication and conform to our editorial style guidelines. Obituaries will list only the names of parents, spouses, children, grandchildren and siblings, surviving and deceased. This service is provided free of charge to the community.

Submissions that deviate from the above policy or from our editorial style can be published as a paid notice at a charge of $100.

Please be sure to include a contact phone number with the obituary.

For your convenience, you can download an obituary information form here. The email address and fax number are on the form. 

Share a news tip

We depend on news tips from our readers to learn what’s going on in the community – from corrupt officials that we hold accountable to locals who are doing something amazing in their neighborhoods. Send us your story ideas.

We’ve got the North Fork’s most comprehensive events calendar. Make sure your event is listed there. Event submissions are free.
