South Georgia’s Greatest Newspaper



Journal-Herald Editor

There is no easy way to break this news. It’s been a long time coming as advertising accounts fled to Facebook, websites, data streaming, “marriage mail,” TV, radio, and several other mediums, followed by reduced print subscriptions as Americans and Waycrossans turned to cell phones to get their news.
The Waycross Journal-Herald, which has been owned and operated by the Williams family since 1916, will cease publication as of September 30, 2019.
Subscribers will be reimbursed in the days ahead for those newspapers they paid for but will not recieve because of this decision. We will be giving refunds next Tuesday, Oct 8, from 9:00am - 2:00pm at 400 Isabella St. Waycross, Georgia 31501.
