Residents of Cherokee and surrounding counties have depended on the Cherokee Scout newspaper for real local news since 1889. The Scout merged with its sister newspaper, the Andrews Journal, in January 2019 to give readers more thorough countywide news coverage and help businesses save money while marketing their products. The Scout also offers an interactive website with exclusive content like Associated Press Digital Sports, a complete e-edition that arrives in your email well before the print edition every week, an internet Marketplace where all print ads are placed online, the annual Celebrate Cherokee County magazine, plus numerous other magazines and special sections. Our goal is to help make Cherokee County an even better place to live and work. We are: One county. One newspaper. Better together.
