Reeder Media to publish Greater Southwest Valley Sourcebook


Reeder Media announced the upcoming publishing of the Greater Southwest Valley Sourcebook, a high-end glossy annual magazine celebrating the amazing cities and residents that make up southwest Riverside County.

A Valley News and Reeder Media publication, the Greater Southwest Valley Sourcebook will be the go-to publication, in print and online, full of interesting and informative features, photos, calendars and information, offering a new and exciting way to tell the stories from city leaders and those who live and work in the area, publisher Julie Reeder said.

It will be distributed to over 1,000 high traffic locations, lobbies, doctor’s offices and hotels throughout the Valley to be read daily by thousands of people.

“We are excited to launch this new publication intended for residents and visitors to Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar and the surrounding areas,” Reeder said. “There are so many great stories to tell in a wide range of entertaining topics. There will be something in this publication for everyone, and it will be a great representation of the area.”

“The inaugural publication will be distributed in early November 2019 and include stories on the history of the area and the people and places that make this valley we all call home such an interesting and special place to live and or to visit,” managing editor Kim Harris said.

Also included will be stories on businesses, nonprofits, dining, entertainment, economics of the area and future development.

“In the works are stories on several local wineries and health-related content, as well as information on doing business in southwest Riverside County,” Harris said. “Our goal is to provide a well-rounded publication that can be used by residents and visitors alike on a daily basis.”

Valley News is an award-winning newspaper read by hundreds of thousands of readers in print and online throughout southwest Riverside County, and Harris said she expects the Greater Southwest Valley Sourcebook to be no exception to that rule.

“The same reporters who share the daily news with readers are the ones producing the articles for this new publication, and with their track record for winning awards, I expect nothing less for this new publication,” Harris said. “Readers can also expect to see engaging content from a few new writers as well. I am super excited to be a part of this first-of-its-kind publication in the valley.”

The inaugural issue of the Greater Southwest Valley Sourcebook also offers an opportunity for residents to get involved with its photography contest, inviting all photographers, amateurs and professionals alike to submit photos of local landscapes, people, events, etc. for judging by Reeder Media staff for publication in the magazine.

“I look on social media every day, and I see all of the great photos that people take when they are out and about in the region, so hosting a photography contest seems to be a perfect way to include the community,” Harris said. “I am excited to see all those photos that our readers will submit and even more excited to be able to act as a judge for this. There is just so much talent here it will be amazing to be a part of this contest.”

Those wishing to enter the contest should send a high resolution photo with no watermarks to and include the photographer’s first and last name as well as a brief description of what is happening in the photo.

According to Reeder, advertising opportunities are still available for those interested in promoting their business to residents and visitors to the area.

“We have advertising opportunities in the Greater Southwest Valley Sourcebook designed to meet every budget,” Reeder said. “As a voice of the valley and a small-business, we understand the need for a positive publication promoting our valley and the need for affordable advertising to help every business in our area thrive. Because of this understanding of these issues, all of us at Valley News and Reeder Media want to ensure that everyone interested has the opportunity to promote their business in this inaugural issue.”
