The Franklin Press

The Franklin Press is a local newspaper serving Franklin and the surrounding communities of Macon County, North Carolina.

The fifth newspaper to publish in Franklin, The Press was preceded by The Franklin Observer, The Western Carolinian, the Macon Advance and The Western Reporter. None of those lasted more than a few years.

The paper flourished under a series of independent owners. The last of these, Bob Sloan, sold the business to Jerue Babb, who built Community Newspapers Inc., in the late 1960s. Babb made significant needed improvements to the physical plant and helped The Press stay afloat in a difficult time for small-town papers.

The Franklin Press facility, on the corner of Depot and Wayah streets in Franklin, was modernized in 2003, with a striking new exterior and an open-plan interior.

The Press operates as part of a region that includes newspapers in Cashiers, Highlands, Bryson City and Spruce Pine. The papers are printed in the Mountain Press facility, which adjoins The Franklin Press offices.
