Getting news about Anderson County just got easier.

The Anderson News now has a new, user-friendly website to keep Anderson County residents informed about their community.

The site launched last week following months of planning, and replaces the outdated site the paper has used for more than a decade.

The site features all of the news posted in each edition of The Anderson News, along with breaking news and a host of other features. Those features include a user-friendly calendar of local and regional events, top videos from across the country and up-to-the-minute news about the stock market.

“We are very happy to launch this new website,” said Ben Carlson, the paper’s editor and publisher. “We are the first to acknowledge that the old website, a relic of the previous company that owned The Anderson News, was outdated and needed a significant upgrade.

“When Paxton Media Group purchased the paper last year, it immediately began work to upgrade our website and that work has now been completed. We are thrilled to know that Paxton Media is willing to invest not only in bringing our readers quality content, but in our community.”

Current and new subscribers are asked to click on the sign-up button on the top right corner of the site’s homepage to register their account.
