About First State Update

First State Update’s Delaware editorial team covers New Castle County, Kent County, and Sussex County breaking news, political news, and general news stories. We bring the reader the latest news from Wilmington, Newark, Dover, Rehoboth Beach, and all points in between.

We launched FirstStateUpdate.com, an independent local news and information platform, to provide local daily Delaware news. First State Update readers are provided with current traffic alerts, crime news, community news, weather, breaking news, and local events via our website and social media platforms.

Delawareans receive most of their news from out of state television stations, one main newspaper, a small news station in southern Delaware, several radio stations, or one of the few local newspapers scattered across the state. That has changed over the last few years. Today many residents have started to receive news via social media, websites, streaming videos, and other Internet-based technologies.

First State Update uses our social networks to provide news to the reader where they are. By providing relevant content to the reader fast, free, and first First State Update has become a trusted source for our Delaware readers.
