About Us

The News-Topic is produced in Lenoir, the county seat of Caldwell County, in the foothills of North Carolina between Blowing Rock and Hickory, and is a direct descendant of the area's first newspaper, The Caldwell Messenger, which began publishing in September 1875. The News-Topic publishes Tuesday through Saturday. Our offices at 123 Pennton Ave. NW are open Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m.
