About Hyannis News

HyannisNews.com is a new alternative news source for Hyannis, Cape Cod, and theĀ Greater Hyannis region.

Our goal is to promote stories you will not find anywhere else.

HyannisNews.com readers deserve a truthful look into what is going on here in ‘HyTown,’ the hub of Cape Cod.

We enjoy sharing “good” news, but we will not shy away from reporting stark realities, issues, and problems that our readers need to know about.

Our philosophy is that the truth is the best disinfectant… which means we cannot fix our problems without first knowing they exist.

Our basic mission:

It’s the goal of HyannisNews.com to continue providing compelling eye-opening and informative stories, photos, and video footage.

At HyannisNews.com we believe the truth is the best disinfectant.

We also believe that a good photo is worth far more than a thousand words. HyannisNews.com is committed to providing news quality stills and video… along with information which gets to the heart of the matter.

Thank you for taking a bold look into the stark realities of HyTown, a city which is the hub of the Cape… a special historic township struggling to overcome and rectify the problems of misguided vision, poverty, crime, and poor planning.

We now have seen Hyannis at its worst; we fondly remember it at its best; an informed community is empowered to decide which direction it wants to take from this point forward.


Thank you for reading HyannisNews.com and stay tuned!
