The Common Good


Noozhawk delivers the freshest news in Santa Barbara and Goleta, day and night. Since our launch in late 2007, we’ve established Noozhawk as an accessible, credible and reliable community resource for mainstream local daily news and information — exclusively online at No other local media source provides more professionally reported content.

We’re covering our community in two unique ways: With professional journalists providing original reporting on issues and topics of the day, especially local news and K-12 education, and by inviting community members to share their own stories on the everyday activities with which they’re involved. The concept allows Noozhawk to reach more deeply into the community than any other publication.

And if you can’t make it to us, we’ll come to you — with our free daily e-Bulletin that we deliver to your inbox each day at 4:15 a.m. Your neighbors will never have to see you in your robe again.
