OnTheWight is a media organisation that connects businesses with Islanders through our Isle of Wight news, events marketing and other information services.

The award-winning team behind OnTheWight are driven by the mission to bring the people of the Isle of Wight (and beyond) straight, honest and clear journalism – the kind of reporting Islanders deserve.

We’re flattered to hear that those goals have been recognised by the people of the Island, bestowing the ultimate accolade – that they Trust what they read here. Hearing that makes the team very proud.

Starting life way back in 2005 as VentnorBlog, we’ve grown in audience; breadth of reporting and community engagement to become part of the fabric of Isle of Wight life.

A core of journalists, reporters and enthusiastic contributors have helped build the success of the publication, which is visited over 100,000 times a month and a strong social media network on Facebook and Twitter.
