About Us

Local news has been the heart and soul of our organization since we first started publishing newspapers in 1890, and for well over a century, we have worked diligently to bring the readers of Grayson County the most comprehensive local news and information possible.

The first paper in Grayson County, named The Grayson Journal, was printed in 1874 and moved to Brandenburg, KY in 1876.

What is now known as the Grayson County News-Gazette was the second newspaper published in Grayson County and was first printed in April 1881 as the Leitchfield Sunbeam. It was sold in 1886, and the name was changed to The Leitchfield Gazette.

A second Grayson County paper, The Grayson County News, was established in Caneyville in 1905. This paper changed hands several times and was eventually moved to Leitchfield in March 1925. In late 1977, the two papers were combined, and the paper was named the Grayson County News-Gazette. We have been here ever since.

Our website is providing even more news and information to all of our readers who have access to the internet. In addition to local news and events, we have integrated special contests, online polls, online magazines, and much more throughout the year. This is an exciting venture for us where we plan to share news and events from our regular print publication and use the power of the internet to interact with the community.
