Many of us in Marion County have missed the absence of the Marion County Informer since it closed a few months ago. I am happy to announce the arrival of MarionCountyPRESS.net. The online news site will be run by Mr. Dean Wade, owner of Pine Belt PRESS and former WDAM-TV reporter, news anchor, and weather anchor.
Like the MCI, Marion County PRESS will focus exclusively on local news, weather, politics, sports, and community events. Mrs. Chloe Oliver will be a writer and marketer for the Marion County Press. Local entities that wish to advertise their business or service on the site through print and/or video can contact Chloe by email . Mrs. Fran Ginn will continue her "Adventures in Good Eating" community column. I, for one, am excited to once again have a unique and engaging online news portal for Columbia, Mississippi.
