Thomas Jefferson to George Washington ...


No government should be without censors, and where the press is free, no one ever will. If virtuous, it need not fear the operation of attack and defense. Nature has given to man no other means of sifting out the truth whether in religion, law or politics ... 

Jefferson understood the need for an informative media. Randolph County is privileged to have great newspapers and broadcast radio, as well as a very active social media community. They keep our citizens informed of national and international information, but they focus primarily on local happenings and the time-honored tradition of local sports in Randolph County. Our media also help promote our existing businesses and aid in attracting new businesses to Randolph County.
