The Beckham County Record

In 1987, the Spitzers chartered their own weekly newspaper "The Sayre Record" to establish a locally owned hometown media for their community and county. Local readers and advertisers embraced the Spitzers' approach to community news and the paper continued to grow. In 1997 the Spitzers purchased The Erick Beckham County Democrat weekly newspaper in the sister city of Erick just to the West of Sayre. The two newspapers became a single publication as one of Oklahoma's youngest newspapers merged with one of Oklahoma's oldest newspapers creating "The Sayre Record and Beckham County Democrat" which provided a much larger reader base and trade area for advertisers. The marriage of the two papers was a good one. In August of 2017, the name was changed to The Beckham County Record and the news coverage began spreading east into Elk City providing comprehensive news coverage throughout Beckham County, offering a wide variety of community, school, and agriculture news for Sayre, Elk City, and Erick.
