Southern Torch Newspaper celebrates 1-year anniversary

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala.— Southern Torch will celebrate one year of print publication this week. On May 28, 2015 Southern Torch rolled out a weekly newspaper to broaden its reach and supplement an ever growing web-based news and video production.

Founded in Rainsville, Ala., Southern Torch launched in 2013 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 one year ago this week, 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.

“We are proud to celebrate this important milestone that marks the anniversary of our first year of print publication,” Southern Torch Editor and Publisher Joseph Morgan said. “By expanding our web-based operation to include a weekly print newspaper one year ago, we have taken our organization to a whole new level.

Locally owned and available in every city and town in DeKalb County, Southern Torch is the only full-color newspaper in DeKalb County. Published each week on Friday, the 12-page, full-color publication provides the reporting of local news with solid, dependable information presented to readers in a unique format and vivid style.

“We are extremely grateful to the thousands of readers in DeKalb County that turn to Southern Torch each week to get their news, both online and in print,” Morgan said. “By utilizing both mediums we have seen explosive growth as we continue to expand our audience and reach. We look forward to continuing to provide DeKalb County with the news and information that is important to our readers. Thank you for your support.”

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.
