Award-winning Orland Park Prairie moving to subscription model

We hope you have enjoyed receiving your award-winning community newspaper free of charge every week for nearly 14 years.

In fact, we know you have, as thousands of you have asked us again and again to keep sending you The Orland Park Prairie.

And we’ve been proud to do so.

We are counting on your continued loyalty and support as, after almost 14 years of free delivery, The Prairie takes a step forward to become a subscription newspaper.

Starting Thursday, March 12, subscriptions to The Prairie, your No. 1 source for local news and information, can be secured in several ways — via mail, fax, phone and online.

To see details, please see the form on Page 7 of this week's print edition, visit, or call (708) 326-9170 and ask to continue receiving The Prairie for less than a dollar an issue ($39 a year).

Over the coming months, anyone who has not subscribed to The Prairie will be removed from the mailing list.

For nearly 14 years, The Prairie has been the hometown newspaper for Orland Park residents. The newspaper has won the hearts of residents and critics, who have lauded The Prairie’s coverage numerous times on the national stage.

To continue to provide unmatched coverage of your hometown — from Village Board reports and crime updates to Taste of Orland packages and Eagles athletics — we ask you not to wait and subscribe today.

The Prairie is a locally owned community newspaper launched in 2006 by 22nd Century Media, which was founded in 2005 and expanded to the northern suburbs in 2010. Since its launch, the company has added 14 newspapers and websites, and has become the largest newspaper group in the southwest suburbs.
