CHAT News Today
CHATNewsToday.ca is Medicine Hat’s online news and community information site!
Since launching in February of 2017, CHAT News Today has become a “go-to” source for Hatters and others who want to know more about what’s happening in Canada’s sunniest city. Residents of southern Alberta are big users of the site, but CHAT News Today has drawn lots of interest from the rest of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and many other areas as well.
Local news and sports remain the biggest draws. The award-winning CHAT Television Newsroom powers the information content on the website, including many video stories and full newscasts. But it’s more than local news and sports on offer. CHAT News Today includes news from Canada and the world, columns by community members, a community events calendar, classified ads, an obituaries page, dedicated sections for real estate and automobile listings and much more. It’s all available 24/7.
And the best part of the site? It’s free! Just log onto the website. There is no subscription fee, no story limit, no paywall and no extra cost for premium content. Want to post a classified advertisement on the site, or inform people about your community event? You can log in and post that for free as well.
Advertisers are intrigued by the impressive early success of the site (over 109,000 unique users in the first month) and are making the newest member of Medicine Hat’s media community part of their marketing plans.
