WHEELING, W.Va. — Over the past 161 years, The Intelligencer has stood firm as the Ohio Valley’s leading source of news and information, and the public’s strongest advocate on issues ranging from politics to crime.
The newspaper’s mission since its founding on Aug. 24, 1852, has remained unchanged, and is printed daily on our front page: “West Virginia’s oldest newspaper, older than the state itself, The Intelligencer has stood guard for 161 years against predatory interests which would violate civil rights. …”
The Intelligencer has been an integral part of life in the region for generations, delivering news from your neighborhood and beyond directly to your door. And as illustrated last year during West Virginia’s sesquicentennial celebration, The Intelligencer was a driving force – the driving force – in West Virginia becoming the 35th state.
But as technology changes, so do newspapers.
More than a decade ago, The Intelligencer began delivering an Internet version to online readers. In 2012, we added a mobile version to allow readers to access information on devices such as iPhones and tablets.
The Intelligencer, on a daily basis, provides readers with comprehensive coverage of news, sports, opinion, the public record and other information important to the people of the Upper Ohio Valley. Neither our website nor mobile platform is an exact copy of the printed version, though. And that’s about to change.
Beginning Thursday, May 15, readers will be able to peruse the entire newspaper, online, every day…
