My favorite newspaper names in North Carolina

by andybechtel

North Carolina has many colorful names: towns like Lizard Lick and Climax, and mountains like Wayah Bald and Clingmans Dome. And don’t forget Shit Britches Creek.

The state also has some unusual names for newspapers. Sure, we have the typical Newses, Observers and Records. But we also have some oddball names.

Here are my favorites, listed in no particular order and excluding student publications:

  • The Daily Reflector (Greenville)
  • The Carrboro Citizen
  • The Cherokee One Feather
  • The Denton Orator
  • The News-Argus (Goldsboro)
  • The Carolina Peacemaker (Greensboro)
  • High Point Enterprise
  • The News-Topic (Lenoir)
  • The Daily Southerner (Tarboro)
  • The Caswell Messenger (Yanceyville)
  • The Sylva Herald & Ruralite
  • The Robesonian (Lumberton)
  • The Highlander (Highlands)
  • The Yadkin Ripple (Yadkinville)
