Abilene Reporter-News

The Abilene Reporter-News is the oldest existing business in Abilene, publishing its first edition on June 17, 1881, from a tent. It is also one of the original Harte-Hanks Newspapers, purchased in the early 1920s and acquired by Scripps in 1997. The Abilene Reporter-News is the leading newspaper in a 15-county zone in west Texas and is the only newspaper published daily in Abilene. The staff has won numerous awards from the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors competition in recent years.
