Rockford Scanner™: Good afternoon everyone, I wanted to go over a few things with you

Rockford Scanner. Rockford’s Leading Online News Site!


Good afternoon everyone, I wanted to go over a few things with you. 

First and foremost, as many of you noticed over the last few days we have been doing some website maintenance.  So you may have experienced an error or two over the last few days. Everything should be back to normal now. We do apologize, and thank you for understanding.  When you run a website, it is just like a vehicle. It needs to be maintained. But everything should be back to normal now.  If you notice any errors, please let us know.

The National Weather Service has us under a Winter Storm Watch.  A WATCH means the possibility of a winter storm. They have models that predict no snow, and some that have us up to a whopping 10 inches!   That is one thing about Mother Nature, you just don’t know what will happen until it does.  Either way, we are currently under a Winter Storm Watch.  And everyone should prepare for it, in case it does happen.  If you need to travel, allow extra time to travel. And bring a fully charged cell phone with you.

Many have been asking about the Advertising Black Friday deal.  If your interested I have extended the deal until 10 pm tonight. If you are interested, shoot me an email at

I have been away for a few days due to the holiday and also doing the website maintenance. I have a lot of emails to still go through. So if you sent us a tip or an email, and I have yet to respond. I got your email/tips and will be responding to your messages later on today. Much appreciated for sending in your content!

I want to personally thank everyone who sends in their tips!  

I am currently seeking a few volunteers.  Volunteers will write articles on our website, listen to the scanner, and post on social media.  If you are interested, contact me at

We are going to be doing more editorials in the future and going to be more candid. We are changing the way we do things. As you know Rockford Scanner stands for the truth and transparency. And we plan on keeping that with our fans!  We have always done this and will continue to do so.  We have opened up our website to our fans, to send us their own editorials and we post them. We feel that the editorials is a good addition to our website, because it lets our fans talk about topics you wouldn’t hear anywhere else.
