The Westfield News is a daily newspaper published Monday through Friday afternoons, and Saturday mornings in Westfield, Massachusetts, United States, covering "Westfield, Southwick and the Hill Towns" of western Hampden County, Massachusetts.
The newspaper was purchased by Westfield native Patrick Berry in June 2011 from Allbritton Communications Company. Its circulation at the time was 4,500 daily.
Upon purchasing the newspaper, Berry introduced color printing for the first time -- by retiring the News' 1971 press and printing instead at The Republican in Springfield -- and changed the paper's name from The Westfield Evening News in order to emphasize the all-day nature of the news cycle. He promised a new website and emphasis on social media such as Twitter and Facebook.
A web site, thewestfieldnews.com, was launched on June 4, 2012.
