The newspapers and sites under the Regional Media Group umbrella are The Press-Democrat (Santa Rosa, Calif.), Wilmington Star-News (N.C.), The Lakeland Ledger (Fla.), Star-Banner (Ocala, Fla.), The Gainesville Sun (Fla.), Spartanburg Herald Journal (S.C.), The Tuscaloosa News (Ala.), The Gadsden Times (Ala.), The Courier (Houma, La.), Times-News (Hendersonville, N.C.), The Thibodaux Daily Comet (La.), The Dispatch (Lexington, N.C.), News Chief (Winter Haven, Fla.), Petaluma Argus-Courier (Calif.), and Sarasota Herald Tribune (Fla.).

According to TechCrunch, The Press-Democrat was the first newspaper in the group to implement Fwix, in its Your Town section.
