Now about to start our fifth year of publication, the circulation for Irvine Community News & Views (ICNV) — both in traditional print format and online — continues to grow at a remarkable pace.  Combined circulation now stands at 50,000 per month.  In September, a total of 24,000 printed papers were distributed throughout Irvine — 7,000 of these to the nearly 150 partnering stores and shopping centers in Irvine, and nearly 20,000 delivered by volunteers on doorsteps and driveways in a number of Irvine villages and neighborhoods.

I admit it…I still prefer to read ICNV the old-fashioned way — as a hold-it-in-your-hands, printed newspaper.  But I’ve also found I really enjoy the paper the way that more than 20,000 readers do — online.  So, subscribe for free, follow us on Facebook, or now add us as a selection on your Apple News app.

Join your friends and neighbors and stay up-to-the-minute on Irvine news and Irvine views, including our new Senior Life — Youthful Lifestyle feature on Page 5.  As always, we are grateful to all of our loyal ICNV readers!
