Business Overview

TheAlternativePress.com was founded in October 2008 by Michael and Lauryn Shapiro, residents of New Providence, New Jersey, who sought to provide their town’s residents with an all-online, objective, independent, daily local newspaper. Months earlier, Michael and Lauryn learned that their one-year-old son would need open-heart surgery and Michael, a lawyer at a large firm in New York City, decided it was time to work close to home, spend more time with the family, and help the community at the same time. Shortly after the site’s launch, he left his firm to lead TAP full-time. Today, TheAlternativePress.com covers more than a dozen towns, is accredited by the New Jersey Press Association, and had over 400,000 readers last year. Shop Local. Read Local.
