The Gleaner

The Gleaner (Henderson)

Bearing one of the more unusual names in the newspaper industry, The Gleaner is the daily paper in Henderson, Ky., an agricultural and manufacturing center in western Kentucky. Perched well above the Ohio River, Henderson was one of the few cities along the river to escape the devastation of the great Flood of 1937; it was longtime Gleaner Publisher Leigh Harris who coined the phrase, "Henderson: On the river, but never in it." The Gleaner is recognized as the finest small daily in Kentucky, consistently winning the Kentucky Press Association's annual General Excellence awards for both editorial and advertising quality in its class. Today it operates as a division of The Evansville Courier & Press, located across the river in Indiana.
