Permanently Closed: The Independent Herald Shutters All Operations

By Derek Tyson, The Independent Herald Editor

WELCH, W.Va. – After over a century of publishing, Wyoming County’s local news source has announced plans to shutter all operations immediately barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Owned and operated by the same team behind McDowell County’s The Welch News, both newspapers have now ceased production.

We are forever grateful for being welcomed into your community, especially by Paige Cline, the Wyoming County Board of Education and the Town of Pineville. We thank you all so much as we turn a new page in the story of our lives.
