The News has been the most reliable source for news on Georgia's lower coast since 1902.
Founded by brothers C.H. Leavy and L.J. Leavy, the paper has covered more than a century's worth of news and remains under Leavy family ownership, making it one of the oldest family-owned newspapers in Georgia and one of the few family controlled newspapers left in the nation. Today, the newspaper is under the ownership of a fourth generation of Leavys and is under the direction of publisher C.H. Leavy IV.
From the doings of America's industrial millionaires on Jekyll Island in the early 20th century to a historic meeting of world leaders on Sea Island in the 21st century, The News has reported every major story of consequence to the community, the state, the nation and the world.
The newspaper's coverage of community preparations leading up to the Group of 8 Summit on Sea Island in 2004 was named "Story of the Year" in 2005 by The Associated Press. In 2003, the newspaper was named one of the state's best with receipt of the Georgia Press Association's "General Excellence" award.
