The Register Guard

The Register-Guard is a locally owned and operated media company since 1927. The company has evolved over the years to become much more than a newspaper. Technology has had a profound influence on the manner in which news and information are gathered and distributed. Today, The Register-Guard employs multiple platforms to disseminate news and advertising to its customers. For example, the electronic, or e-edition, of the newspaper is a downloadable duplicate of the printed paper that is a virtual page turner for desktop, laptop or tablet computers. The newspaper’s website, registerguard.com, features what is known as responsive design technology that allows optimum viewing on smartphones as well as on tablets and desktop devices. Register-Guard photographers produce video and slide shows, reporters write blogs and use social media such as Twitter to comment and alert readers to their stories and breaking news. Featured R-G news apps include Ducks football and basketball. The Register-Guard advertising department now also provides digital advertising assistance for local businesses that goes beyond ads on the R-G website. The Register-Guard has always been "a citizen of its community" and is now also very much a resource for digital marketing via extensive distribution channels and print and digital production expertise.
