About NRI NOW

Northern Rhode Island News On the Web was founded in 2018 by North Smithfield-based journalist Sandy Seoane.

A reporter for nearly a decade with experience in both print and online news, Seoane aims to bring a new source of information to the region, starting with the town of Burrillville, and using her experience in conventional media to bring light to local issues.

NRI NOW is not a blog. It’s a news website by and for residents of northern Rhode Island. We cover human interest stories, as well as local government, politics and crime.

We hope you enjoy the site. Send us your news tips, or tell us how we’re doing by emailing sandy@nrinow.news
