Welcome to Inland Empire Community Newspapers (IECN)
El Chicano • Colton Courier • Rialto Record • The Inland Empire Weekly



Inland Empire Community Newspapers, or IECN, represents the overall marketing name of four community newspapers: El Chicano, Colton Courier, Rialto Record and The Inland Empire Weekly. Since advertisers are able to make one purchase and have the benefits of circulation in all four paper coverage areas, it became necessary to create one name that represented all the newspapers. IECN was thus established in 1992 and has been in use ever since.

The newspapers of Inland Empire Community Newspaper cover the cities of San Bernardino, Colton, Rialto, Grand Terrace, Loma Linda, Redlands and Highland, California.

With El Chicano newspaper, the oldest Chicano (Hispanic, Latino, Mexican and now, of course, Latin American) newspaper in the Inland Empire, the issues of the Chicano community are not forgotten by the other major media serving the community. When El Chicano owners purchased the Colton Courier and Rialto Record in 1987, the second Chicano/Hispanic-owned chain of newspapers was created. The first was in Los Angeles.

El Chicano's coverage area is the City of San Bernardino, California, but includes news of the Hispanic/Chicano/Latino communities throughout Southern California.

The Colton Courier covers news in Colton, California and is one of California's oldest newspapers. It goes back to the days of The Earps, Wyatt and Virgil, when Virgil was town Marshall. The Courier started in 1878 which predates the Main County Daily.

The Rialto Record covers news in the City of Rialto, California. It was originally a newspaper for the citrus industry.

In 2005, The Inland Empire Weekly was launched to cover the communities of Loma Linda, Redlands and Highland, California.

The content within "IECN Sections" pertains to news items from all of IECN's coverage areas, including the county of San Bernardino.
