The Weston Forum is a weekly newspaper founded in 1970. In 2005, we launched the first news and information website focusing entirely on Weston. Our focus in both print and online continues to be local news; we cover all aspects of Weston life, from town government and school news, to sports coverage, social and community events, business updates and feature stories.
The Forum is part of Hersam Acorn Newspapers, a traditional and new media firm, which includes printing facilities and local papers, specialty publications and websites in more than 20 communities in southwestern Connecticut, Lewisboro, N.Y., and Vermont. This gives our readers easy access to regional news and events as well as exposure to advertisers from across the region.
The Weston Forum newsroom is located at 16 Bailey Avenue, Ridgefield, CT 06877. It can be reached at (203)894-3332.
