Forsyth County News
The Forsyth County News has launched the South Forsyth News, a weekly newspaper focused on southern Forsyth County.

Beginning with its debut edition today, the South Forsyth News will be delivered each Sunday to some 16,000 homes.

In its pages readers will find news, sports, human interest features, columns and community events that are of particular interest to those who live in the southern portion of the county.

“We have for some time recognized that southern Forsyth County needs a newspaper to help establish its community identity,” said publisher John Hall. "Frequently, there are issues that may be of particular interest in South Forsyth that need more focused attention than they can be given in a countywide newspaper like the Forsyth County News."

Sometimes items of common interest will appear in both publications, but frequently there will be stories and columns in the South Forsyth News that have not been published elsewhere.

In addition to the sorts of stories traditionally covered by community newspapers, the South Forsyth News each week will feature special columns on subjects of interest to area residents. Writers from the area, such as Phill Bettis and Adlen Robinson, will be regular contributors.

"The South Forsyth News gives us an opportunity to reach potential readers who may not have subscribed to the Forsyth County News in the past," Hall said. "That’s good for us as a newspaper company, good for residents of the area, and good for the advertisers who are looking for new customers for their businesses.”
