We went to work Monday with the same co-workers we’ve known for years. We looked out on the same beautiful, bustling Augusta. We went about putting the news together as always.
The ownership of The Chronicle may have changed Monday – after GateHouse Media’s purchase became official. But it’s still yours.
Believe us: Most of us have been in the news business for years, if not decades. We consume the news just like you. And we take your calls and emails, and see you at civic clubs and church and at our favorite events and restaurants. We know just how personal a relationship this is.
It’s still us. And it’s still about you – and reflecting and hopefully enhancing the community we all love and share.
In fact, longtime publisher and chairman of the editorial board William S. “Billy” Morris III is staying on board.
What that means is a refreshing continuity in today’s world of constant change. And it means our editorial pages will still sing the praises of Augusta and America – advancing those principles of individual liberty, personal responsibility, limited government, national security, civic duty, civility and morality that has made us a leading voice in Georgia and the Southeast.
The paper may have new owners, but it hasn’t changed hands.
It’s still in yours.
