The Spring River Chronicle is a weekly newspaper covering primarily Fulton and Sharp Counties, but also parts of Lawrence, Izard, Independence, Randolph and Oregon County in Missouri.
We are the largest circulated newspaper and are also the only locally owned newspaper in a three county area. We strive to put our readers and advertisers first, giving them the most news fastest and most accurately and provide the most cost effective advertising opportunities.
Spring River Chronicle was purchased in 2017 by Paul and Tammy Curtis. Since the purchase, the newspaper has became the largest circulated paper in the area. SRC has won 106 Arkansas Press Awards for both editorial and advertising content, design and layout. Our goal is to represent the true meaning of local journalism, covering the stories everyone wants to hear and never shying away from controversial topics and government corruption that many corporate based news providers avoid in fear of losing advertising dollars. This type of coverage has also brought home three investigative journalism awards from Arkansas Press Association, and the coveted I.F. Stone Investigative Journalism award, one that has never been awarded to a small weekly in the state.
We believe people of Spring River Country work hard for what they have and deserve to know the truth at all times.
At SRC we believe the public has a right to be informed and aware of news happening in their areas. This allows them to make educated decisions on actions they may want to take to change things or promote events in their area.
The Curtis’ have lived in Sharp and Fulton Counties for over 50 years and love the area and the people who live here. We are the area’s only full color newspaper, printed on bright white news stock for a vibrant appeareance.
Thank you for trusting us to bring you the news you seek.
