Local news for Laurel, Ellisville & Jones County

About Us


The Chronicle is a cutting-edge publication with community-based values. The Chronicle prints every Wednesday and Saturday. Our focus is on community news and local sports, but we also cover state and national news relevant to our readers.

Our seasoned team of award-winning journalists, photographers, designers and members of our staff bring to the Greater Laurel area a unique blend of local news and sports coverage, while our advertising and creative services staff develops partnerships, not just a one-time customer. Our staff, with a combined 400-plus years of local newspaper experience, lives here and loves Laurel-Jones County. Because this is our community, we are dedicated to producing a quality publication that is reflective of the values of our family and neighbors.  

We also publish The Chronicle Magazine, a monthly glossy publication that is just good Southern reading, and we are proud to partner with the Laurel Board of Realtors in publishing the monthly slick magazine, Real Estate Spotlight. This group of respected Real Estate professionals trusts The Chronicle for content, design, printing and distribution. With premium publications to honor holidays, local industry, important events, athletics and an annual Community Profile Edition, we believe our mission is to promote our community and share in its history.

The Chronicle is also online with content that is free to our print subscribers and only $5 per month for non-print customers:  www.thechronicle.ms engages readers with breaking news, local scores, updates and newspaper content. A subscription-based website creates a unique opportunity for online advertising since the users actually want to be there. The Chronicle is also recognized as one of the leaders in social media, providing important, accurate information to readers during breaking news events and regular updates while directing them to our website for more detailed information.
