- About us
Welcome to www.randolphguide.com! We invite you to slip off your cyber shoes and make yourself at home. We hope you will bookmark us right now and plan to come back for a longer stay.
The Randolph Guide, which published its first edition in January 1954, has gone through a number of changes over the years. At one time, The Randolph Guide was a sister paper to The Ramseur Bulletin and The Randleman Reporter. The three papers were merged into one – The Randolph Guide – but our commitment to those communities remains strong as does our commitment to covering all of Randolph County.
Our parent company is Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., which was formed in 1997 with corporate headquarters located in Montgomery, Ala. CNHI is the parent company for daily, weekly and semiweekly newspapers published in more than 150 communities throughout the United States. In North Carolina, CNHI also owns The Stanly News & Press in Albemarle and The Daily Southerner in Tarboro.
We pride ourselves on the fact that every edition is full of local news. But that is our focus: this community and the people who live here. We are committed to you and will listen and respond positively to your needs. We are committed to providing the highest quality products that add value to your life – including an online presence.
