Good News

Record #:
There are around 200 newspapers in the state. About 37 percent are privately owned. The News Reporter in Whiteville is 104 years old and has seen three generations sit at the editor's and publisher's desks. The paper is a survivor. Of the eleven Columbus County newspapers in existence between 1878 and 1908, only the Reporter remains. In 1954, the newspaper shared the Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Service with the Tabor City Tribune. The papers courageously investigated the Ku Klux Klan.
