Southern Torch Celebrates Six-Year Anniversary

By Marla Jones, Managing Editor •

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala.— Southern Torch celebrates its sixth year as a media company this week. On August 26, 2013, Southern Torch began to shine the spotlight on local news and sports that matter to you, our audience.

Founded in Rainsville, Ala., Southern Torch launched as the first true New Media news outlet in the region, quickly earning a reputation for providing the most reliable, comprehensive online news coverage in DeKalb County, combining quality reporting with cutting edge video production.

With the addition of the weekly print newspaper in May 2015, Southern Torch has remained committed to providing the news, information, and coverage of community events, local government and sporting events important to readers in every community in DeKalb County—regardless of how large or small.

Published each week on Friday, the publication provides the reporting of local news with solid, dependable information presented to readers in a unique format and vivid style.

In April of this year, Southern Torch grew even more with the purchase of two radio stations in Scottsboro: 98-3 Wild Country and 101-7 The Torch. Listen every morning from 6am to 9am to Joe & Jenna Sue’s morning show, 2pm to 7pm for the Wild Ride Home with Brian Anderson and on Friday nights, be sure to catch our complete coverage of Wildcat football from 6pm to 9pm followed by the Southern Torch Network Friday Night Roundup with Managing Editor Marla Jones and Chris Capps!

To celebrate reaching this milestone, for the next month Southern Torch will be offering a one-year subscription for the discounted rate of only $20. To take advantage of this limited time subscription offer, or for information about advertising with Southern Torch, call 256-638-4040 to contact our Rainsville office, 256-259-2341 to contact the Scottsboro office, or visit us online at
