A Little History

In 2004, we celebrated our 20th anniversary as the community newspaper of Martha’s Vineyard. The newspaper and other print products, as well as this web site, are published by Martha’s Vineyard Times Corporation Inc., which is owned by Peter and Barbara Oberfest, who serve as publishers, and by Molly and Doug Cabral, who is the editor.

The Martha’s Vineyard Times was founded in the spring of 1984, and since then it has become the most widely read newspaper for year-round Islanders and long-term summer residents, as well as visitors. We serve a readership of wide-ranging interests, education, economic levels, and sophistication. The Martha’s Vineyard Times also has a strong tradition of service to readers and customers. For most Island people we are the primary news and advertising medium, the genuinely local paper.

The company, the publishers and editors, and the entire staff of The Martha’s Vineyard Times are committed to quality and integrity in writing and reporting, leadership in the Martha’s Vineyard community, service to customers and readers, and business success for The Martha’s Vineyard Times Corporation and its team of employees.
