About us

While The Sheridan Press “traces its ancestry back to 1887,” the first edition under our current name was published on Sunday, Nov. 9, 1930, when Sheridan County’s newspapers merged. Our motto at the time? “The Biggest Little Daily in the U.S.A.” 

The award-winning independent newspaper offers print and online news delivery platforms to the thriving community, which boasts a college; a lively arts, culture, and music scene; a bustling downtown; and many other amenities, including unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities.

The mission of The Sheridan Press is to inform and engage the community by creating, producing and distributing exceptional content and trusted journalism.
