About Us

Founded in 1877, The Anderson News has a long history of journalism excellence.

The newspaper, located at 504 West Broadway, Suite D in Lawrenceburg, Ky., has won numerous awards for excellence in journalism and advertising from the Kentucky Press Association, including being named the state’s best newspaper in its class dozens of times.

It is clearly the place people turn to find out what’s going on in Lawrenceburg and Anderson County and where local and nearby businesses turn to deliver their advertising messages.

The paper has grown over the years from a privately owned product that was printed on-site in Lawrenceburg to one that is owned by Landmark Community Newspapers, headquartered in nearby Shelbyville.

As demand for new media grows, so does the importance of the newspaper’s website www.theandersonnews.com. Updated frequently with breaking news items, the website offers readers instant access to news from and about Lawrenceburg and offers a host of interactive features such as opinion polls, a community-based calendar and a message board.

The website is the most frequently visited locally hosted website in Anderson County, sporting tens of thousands of page views each month.
