“We are excited to bring to our readers,” said News-Telegram publisher Don Moore. “It is easier to use and offers readers more options and easier access for our readers and advertisers. We have thousands of readers, and Hopkins County residents can count on us on breaking news 24/7 from our team of journalists.”

While the website developers are still working out a few quirks, the new site at is up and ready for Hopkins County readers to see what new features are available.

First is the free content, which includes advice, guest columnists, some opinions, state and national news, Sulphur Graphs, obituaries, online polls and special publications, including the 2019 Graduation and this week’s 2019 Dairy Festival sections that are currently available.

Visitors to the website can now submit their own news tips, announcements and letters to the editor under “Tell us your news,” which will be sent directly to the newsroom of the News-Telegram.

Subscribers to the News-Telegram can sign up for access to all premium content prepared by the local news staff for and about Hopkins County communities.
