A BRIEF HISTORY:
Pete Dykes, our founder, began The Post weekly in 1963 and in that same year, despite not having a press, The Post became the first paper in Kingsport to hit the streets with an EXTRA announcing the tragic assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The Daily News began in 1971, taking center stage as The Post continued to publish weekly. The Post is now a quarterly magazine offered exclusively by subscription.
In order to provide the best news and advertising product possible, the Daily News now publishes as an extensive, combined weekend edition, offering more of everything - more news, more advertising and more color that any other newspaper in Kingsport.
With God's help, we will continue to publish Kingsport's best newspaper.
